I attended West Virginia Tech on a football schlarship and years later returned to college to become certified to teach special education at James Madison University in Virginia. One of my first jobs was working on the staff of U. S Congressman Caldwell Butler from Virginia. From there I served in the Coast Guard, then to the private sector and working for a large brick manufacturer working in marketing from an area covering North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York. I worked for other companies afterwards in similar positions. My last job before teaching was working as the shipping manager for the Home Shopping Network.

We enjoy the beach, college football, traveling to see friends and family aroung the country(mostly in the summer).
