I was born and raised in eastern North Carolina and have lived in the Asheville area since 1997. My life has brought me various opportunities and experiences that have shaped my perspectives and allowed me to keep an open mind toward the students, families, and the school community.
I graduated from Gardner-Webb with my Master's degree in School Administration - Executive Leadership and served as an Assistant Principal at Clyde A. Erwin Middle School from 2015-2022. I graduated from Mars Hill University with a Bachelor's in Education and Business. My classroom experience was at A.C. Reynolds Middle School for English Language Arts and Social Studies from 2006-2015. In addition, I also had the pleasure of serving as an athletics coach for seven years, partnered with other educators for curriculum development, and served on various committees within Buncombe County Schools.
I am passionate about growing students to feel successful and be successful in whatever path they choose. I am student-driven; I have a firm belief in family first and believe in community. My role is to build positive relationships with students, staff, and families that help me decide and implement choices that will positively impact the entire school community. My goal is to provide a safe, respectful, and encouraging educational environment and implement rigorous and high-order instruction at Cane Creek Middle School.
I am excited to be a part of the Cane Creek family and look forward to an exciting 2023-2024 school year. Go Hurricanes!
