Biography: I am originally from Greensboro, North Carolina where I attended UNC-Greensboro as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow.  I earned my undergraduate degree in Middle Grades Education with a concentration in Language Arts and Science.  I taught five years in a Title I Middle School in HIgh Point, NC serving as the STEM teacher for the school and during this time received my Master’s in Education from Gardner-Webb University.   I relocated to Charlotte, NC where I taught middle school Engineering.  Shortly after transitioning to Charlotte, I became the STEM Coordinator serving K-8th grade students and teachers.  My most recent role has been that of a middle school Academic Facilitator.  To grow in leadership, I revisited Gardner-Webb University to obtain my Administrator’s license.  Outside of working with students and supporting teachers, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and close friends.   My husband and I met during our first year of teaching and we recently became parents to a beautiful and bubbly 8 month old girl, Emerie.  We also have our dog Diva, a Yorkshire Terrier, who truly lives up to her name.  Together we enjoy taking mini-vacations,  random road trips, and trying new restaurants around Charlotte.
