Degrees and Certifications:
I am from Nash County, and graduated from North Johnston High School. I received my undergaduate and graduate degrees from East Carolina University, in which I studied Child Development, Psychology, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Counseling. I consider Johnston County home and am passionate about educating our youth to provide them with a better future. Children are the key to a better tomorrow, and I firmly believe no child should feel unimportant, regardless of their level of potential or academic success.
Proverbs 31: 8-9 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; depend the rights of the poor and needy."
