This is my tenth year teaching, but my fourth in Onslow County Schools. I taught for the Onslow K-12 Virtual School team last year, after teaching two years at Southwest Middle, and I am happy to be back with my Colts family this year. I previously taught in Craven County Schools. I am actually a graduate of Onslow County Schools (White Oak High School class of 2008), and I'm excited about having returned home as I began my own family. I married the love of my life, Jonathan, Memorial Day of 2019, and shortly after we welcomed into the world our precious baby girl, Aniyah. This year our family grew by another set of tiny feet as we welcomed our youngest daughter, Aria.
I was a participant in the North Carolina Teaching Fellows program at North Carolina Central University in Durham, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English Education (with a minor in Writing) and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2012.
