I grew up in Belmont, North Carolina, and graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and Mathematics. I received my Masters Degree and Education Specialists Degree from the University of South Carolina. Upon moving to South Carolina, my first teaching job was here at Oak Grove Elementary teaching mathematics. My next teaching assignment with Lexington One took me to Lexington Middle School as a mathematics teacher and it was there at LMS that I entered the area of administration as an Assistant Principal for Instruction. I later moved to the Intermediate School as an Assistant Principal and soon after became Principal at LIS. This is my seventh exciting year as Principal at Oak Grove Elementary.

After teaching for a few years, I earned my Masters Degree in Educational Administration from the Citadel. I started my teaching career at Spann Elementary in Summerville. I taught 3rd and 5th grade at Spann. In 2004 I became an Assistant Principal at Thomas Cairo Middle School. I worked for two years at Thomas Cairo then I became the Assistant Principal at Belle Hall Elementary. I started working in Lexington One in 2009 as a teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary. After teaching for three years in Lexington One I became an Administrative Assistant Principal in Lexington Richland 5 for four years.
