I grew up in Jacksonville, and attended Northwoods Elementary, Northwoods Park Middle and graduated from Jacksonville High School, in 1990!  I graduated college with my Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, in 1995.  I earned my National Board teaching certification in 2003, and earned my Masters of Education Degree, in Curriculum and Instruction Technology from Grand Canyon University in 2006.​​



My first teaching job was at Hunters Creek Middle School, in 1998.  I taught Keyboarding, Business Computer Technology and Business & Marketing for 7 years.  In 2006, I became one of the first Instructional Technology Facilitators for Onslow County Schools!  I am beginning my 20th year as an educator in Onslow County Schools, and my 13th as a Digital Learning and Teaching Facilitator (Instructional Technology Facilitator) and I love it!  Occasionally. I have taught online Business Education classes for Granville County Schools.


I am the Digital Learning and Teaching Facilitator for Onslow County's FIRST year round School of Technology and Innovation, Northwoods Elementary! This will be my 5th year here and it is just as exciting as my first! I love to help the teachers integrate technology into their curriculum in new and innovative ways!  My goal is to provide leadership and to collaborate with teachers, media and technology staff, administration and students to evaluate and select resources addressing curricular needs and learning strategies.  I am part of the Instructional Support Team and the School's Strategic Planning Team. I want to assist all of my students and teachers in becoming 21st Century Learners and Leaders! I was awarded the school's Student Support Educator of the Year award for 2016-2017.


I am married to my wonderful husband, Tom and we have three beautiful daughters, Cassy, Erin and Marissa!  We also have three wonderful grandchildren, Preslie, Jaxon and Evangeline.  In my free time, I like to volunteer as a Youth Group Leader and LiveStream Booth Technician at our local church.
