This is my 5th year at Swansboro High School, and I am ever proud to be a Pirate!

I am from the foothills of North Carolina, near Winston-Salem.  I'm a proud alumnus of Catawba College and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  During graduate school, I served as a teacher for Writers in Action as well as a Teaching Assistant for college-level creative writing courses.  For three years, I directed a summer camp called Young Writers Week for UNCW, which allows high school students to act as writers-in-residence on the main campus.  

I live with my loving, bearded husband and our two cats, Delphy & Oscar.  

If I'm not teaching, reading, or writing, I'm trying to catch a fish or go camping!
