B.S. in Elementary Education, M.A. in Reading Education from Appalachian State University

What I enjoy most about working with students:

I enjoy working with students to help them hone in on their strengths and passions so that they can find the best-fitting career option for them! I love to listen to student’s needs and be a direct resource in the best and most affirming ways that I can.

My hometown:

I am from Pfafftown, NC (better known as Winston Salem)

First job out of college:

Teaching, assisting, and substituting for an elementary school in Banner Elk, NC (right down the road from Sugar mountain!)

Lowest grade I got as an undergrad:

I believe it was a B+ or a B and I was distraught over it!

If I didn’t work for Advising I would:

Be a writer and/or poet and possibly start a food/baking blog!

Bucket list item

Explore Europe’s old art and architecture and enjoy all the food with my husband!
