I feel fortunate to serve two of Onslow County's elementary schools, Meadow View and Southwest, as their gifted education specialist.  Teaching and learning are two of my passions, and I love that my work with students still offers so many rewards and challenges after more than 25 years.

My ties to this community are strong, having lived here since 1994.  My husband and I are the proud parents of one daughter.  When I'm not at school, I love spending time at home with our family, friends, and pets.
