Hello and welcome to my homepage. This is my 29th year at East and it is a wonderful place to teach. I grew up not far from here in Kingsport, Tennessee where I graduated from East Tennessee University and played volleyball for 4 years. I continued my education at Western Kentucky University where I served as the assistant volleyball coach and obtained my masters degree. Before coming to EAMS I taught at Lenoir Rhyne University and was the head volleyball and softball coach for 5 years. I wear many hats here at East as I am the Athletic Director and volleyball and girl's soccer coach. I reside in Conover and I have one daughter, Terriona, who is a Freshman at Alexander Central High School. I am an avid Tennessee Volunteer fan and enjoy working in my yard in my free time.
