• Hi!  I have been in education for over 18 years and at Oak Ridge Elementary School for 4 years. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Birth-Kindergarten from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2003, Master of Education in Special Education from Greensboro College in 2008, and a Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Gardner-Webb University in 2017. I am a National Board Certified teacher in the area of Exceptional Needs and received a School Administration license from Gardner- Webb in 2020.  I have classroom and district level experience with PBIS, MTSS and Mental Health.

    I live in Oak Ridge with my husband, Brad, and our two sweet children. Our son, Jack, is in 7th grade, and our daughter, Kinley, is in 4th grade. Our puppy, Daisy, just had her second birthday. As a family, we enjoy kayaking and traveling to the beach or West Jefferson.
