About Me:

I grew up in Western North Carolina and graduated from Tuscola High School. I attended Western Carolina University and graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Special Education.  After graduation from WCU, I made the move to the coast of NC. After 10 years of living close to the beach in Wilmington and Elizabeth City, NC, I decided to move back home to the mountains.  I have a daughter who attends Enka Middle School.  I also have two puppies (they are really no longer puppies) Luna, an Australian Cattle Dog and Beau, an Australian Sheppard.   In 2009 I obtained National Board Certification as an Exceptional Needs Specialist and successfully completed the renewal process in November 2018. I am completed a Master's Degree in Severe Disabilities through the Roads to Learning and Earning Grant at WCU, which  examines post-secondary goals in our communities for students with severe disabilities.  I enjoy teaching at the middle school level.  I have some amazing students and each day brings something new and exciting.  Every student I interact with allows me to learn about myself.
