I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences from Gardner Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. After starting out in the Banking industry, I went on to get my teaching certification from Mercer University. I have also obtained my ED Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership. I have taught at the elementary, middle and high school levels, with my heart being with the middle school! My husband and I enjoy golfing, fishing, watching college football, and doing things outdoors. We have 2 daughters, Katie and Abbie.
