I have been in education for 20 years, teaching early elementary children. I have enjoyed seeing them grow socially as well as academically. I spent most of my career in Cleveland County before joining Watauga Virtual Learning Academy at Bethel Elementary School. In my leisure time, I enjoying riding my motorcycle, exploring the mountains and playing cards. Me, my husband, Dennis and my son, Will moved to Blowing Rock recently. We love the area and plan to retire here.
