After several years in marketing, I made the leap to pursue my passion by entering the teaching profession. This will be my second year at FOMS. Prior to joining the Cardinal team, I taught 5th grade at Wayne Avenue school in Harnett County, and a 4th/5th combination class at Buies Creek Elementary. While in marketing I held the position of Executive Director of Harnett County United Way, Marketing Director for the Harnett County Partnership for Children, and Marketing Director of the Sampson County Wellness Center. However, my true calling is teaching. I find teaching to be both rewarding and fulfilling. I strive to bring out the best in my students and help them achieve their academic goals.
I am the mother of two amazing young ladies, I've been married for 22 years, and I am the "mommy" of three dogs and two cats. In my leisure I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family. I am excited to be joining the 7th grade team this year, and I look forward to a fantastic 2019-2020 school year!
