Institutional Service and Responsibilities

I am the Administrative Assistant to the Provost of Lees-McRae College. I began my employment at Lees-McRae in 1983 and have remained in the same position for 33 years. I have served under nine Vice Presidents during my time at LMC. Some of my responsibilities include processing transcripts, assisting the Provost, the Assistant Provost, the Registrar’s Office, and the faculty. I love working at LMC and serving the students and faculty.    

Personal Interests

I am a native of Avery County and have been married to my husband Bill for 38 years. We have two children and four grandchildren. My daughter, son and daughter-in-law are all graduates of Lees-McRae College. I enjoy spending time with family, farming, gardening, sewing, baking, four-wheel riding, camping and raising cattle. I am a “dabbler” at a variety of things such as cake decorating, playing the piano, refinishing furniture and masonry. I love the outdoors and spend as much time there as possible.
