I attended  East Carolina University, as a student and an athlete. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in May of 1980. The following fall I began my career as a teacher in the North Carolina Public School System, where I have remained for 27 years.  I have a teaching certification in Physical Education and Exceptional Children.  I have also enjoyed being a coach of many sports, but mainly a Championship 3A /4A High School Varsity Women's Basketball Coach.

Having an opportunity to teach and coach young people is a dream come true, mainly to know I have had a chance to make a difference .

There have been many rewards in my career and many success stories about the young lives that I have an opportunity to be a part of. The main goal being the successful path they take after high school. Being a teacher is a tremendously rewarding experience.


Teaching Experience : Goldsboro City Schools , Johnston County Schools ,Pitt County Schools and Onslow County Schools;

12 years teaching Exceptional Children 9-12 and 15 years teaching Health and Physical Education, 25 years Coaching Women's Basketball, 14 years at the High School Level, with 8, 3A-4A Regional  Tournament appearances/ 3- 3A-4A Regional Tournament Championships / 3- 3A-4A State Championship appearances, 2- 3A-4A  State Championships 1982 & 2011; 

My main inspiration is a desire to make a difference for young people; to prepare them for the oportunities and possibilities that are part of their dreams ;their goals. I want to give back, to a world that has opened doors of opportunity for me !

Athletics has always been my life from ping pong, golf and swimming to National Championship Softball at ECU in 1980.
