I grew up in Alexander County and am an ACHS alumni! I started teaching in the health sciences department at ACHS in January, 2020. I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a bachelor of science in nursing and have been a nurse since 2003. I have worked in the hospital, the health department, and most recently as a school nurse for Alexander County Schools. I'm married with two children, 3 dogs, a cat, and 8 chickens! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, cooking, camping, kayaking, hiking, and practicing yoga.
