Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from East Carolina University with a bachelor's in political science and a minor in business administration. GO PIRATES!
Prior to coming to teaching with the NC Teach Program, I held numerous jobs in the finance industry. I have worked as a branch manager at a major bank, was a mortgage loan officer, and most recently worked at Stateside Elementary as their Financial Treasurer. It was there that I discovered my love for working with children and decided to return to school and pursue a teaching license. Though I loved my elementary school children, my passion was to work with middle school children.
I was born and raised in Richlands, and attended both Trexler and Richlands High School. After graduation from ECU, I moved to Wilmington, NC for 13 years. In 2009, I decided to return home to be with family. I am married to my husband David, and we have four beautiful children - Julie 17, Noah 13, Kaitlyn 11, and Camden 4. I love all sports, but can usually be found at the soccer field. I am so excited to be at Trexler Middle School!
