I was born and raised in Raleigh NC. I graduated from NC State with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I moved to Clayton when I started teaching here and love it! 

I got married in November of 2017 to my wonderful husband Bobby. We have one dog, named Scooby. I enjoy taking Scooby for walks, spending time with my family and going to the lake.


These are a Few of my Favorite Things:
Fun Facts: I LOVE the sunset, especially over water and I am different and do not like chocolate!
