Prior to becoming Department Chairperson here at A-B Tech I served as the director of a 5 star developmental day child care center. I also served as the Collegiate Education Outreach Advisor here at A-B Tech for two years. As a classroom teacher I taught More at Four (now known as NC Pre K) as well as working directly with children with hearing loss in preschool and elementary school settings. I taught American Sign Language for A-B Tech’s Continuing Education Department for many years as well.
I am a native of Asheville and am the mother of two boys. My boys are the joy in my days, as well as the challenge! We also have a dog named Cooper and a very talkative cat named Sadie! I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends exploring the mountains I call home as well as traveling when I can. In addition to traveling I also enjoy photography, reading and hammock camping! I’m excited to be back at A-B Tech and working with such a dedicated faculty and wonderful students who are working daily to become better teachers for the children of our community!
