My family

I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I grew up in North Carolina and moved back to Philadelphia when I was 21 after graduating from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. I pursued my teaching career while in Philadelphia and went to Cabrini College in Radnor, PA. I received my Master's Degree in Education and certifications in Elementary Education (K-5) and Special Education (N-12). 

While in Philadelphia I worked for five years in a home setting for a family whose son had severe autism. I also taught in a private school for students with Autism for 2 years before moving back to North Carolina.

I got married to my husband, Nick, in July 2014. I love North Carolina and am happy to be back!
