Institutional Service and Responsibilities

I am always concerned and actively involved with our students' successes. If a student is struggling, it is our philosophy to help the student be as successful as they wish to be.

I am proud to be the Assistant Coach for the Bobcat Cheerleaders (I cheered in high school at South Caldwell High School in Hudson). I am happy to be a part of the best cheerleaders in our athletic conference.

Personal Interests

I received my RN-to-BSN from Lees-McRae in 2011 and proudly assisted in awarding my future daughter-in-law her degree in Wildlife Rehabilitation from Lees-McRae in May 2017. My family is active in the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte with our youngest son Jeffrey.
