I am a native North Carolinian and I matriculated through the UNC system, receiving a bachelor's degree (Public Health Education and Biology) from UNC-Greensboro and a master's degree (Public Health Education with a concentration in policy and planning) from UNC-Chapel.
Prior to coming to Woods, I worked in a variety of educational arenas, ranging from church education departments; a health educator in a county public health department; trainer for North Carolina's first Dispute Settlement mediators; home school teacher, counselor, and administrator; substitute teacher; and tutor. I came on board with the Woods community as a second grade teacher in the fall of 2011. I strongly value helping each student reach his or her potential. With this in mind, our class motto is: "Today and everyday, I will do my best!"
My husband and I have co-pastored a church in Pittsboro since 1993, which has offered us another opportunity to serve our community and the world. Foreign and local missions has taken us across the US, to the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.
We have two adult sons (Jordan) and Brenton (Yael).
