I am a native of North Carolina. 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.
Before coming to Woods, I worked in various 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 their potential. With this in mind, our class motto is: "Today and every day, I will do my best!" And we believe that we can do this because our class affirmation is, "We are maturing, strong thinking, respectful, helpful, kind, caring, and responsible leaders."
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 have taken us to the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa across the US.
