I earned my B.Ed in elementary education from UNC-Charlotte in December 2002. I taught with Charlotte Mecklenburg School District, mainly in Equity Plus schools. I then moved to Carolina International Charter School in Concord for 13 years. I finished Masters level courses at UNC Charlotte earning an advanced degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Gifted Education on August 13, 2013. In August 2021, I became a member of the Community Public Charter School family, both as a staff member and a parent.
I live in Lincolnton with my husband of 22 years, our 7 year old son, Elijah, and 2 cats, Mia and Cosmo. In my spare time I love to read and watch movies. My favorite books are the Looking Glass Wars trilogy, Harry Potter series and The Inheritance Trilogy (which is no longer a trilogy). I love fantasy creatures, especially dragons.
