I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Education (middle grades science) in 1982. Go Heels!

I later went back to college and received a B.S. in Exercise Science from High Point University. Go Panthers!


I have been a teacher in Onslow County Schools my entire career. I taught at Northwoods Park Middle School for 15 years...13 of those were teaching science and math. The last two years, I made the move to teaching Health and Physical Education. For the last 12 years, I have been a Health and P.E. teacher/assistant athletic director at Swansboro Middle School. I have coached many sports throughout my career including: middle and high school softball, middle and high school basketball, and middle school track and field. I am VERY excited to be the new P.E. teacher at Stateside Elementary!!


Here's a little bit about myself: I have lived in Onslow County for 30 years moving here right after graduating from Carolina. This is rare since I am married to a Marine! We were lucky to only move a couple of times and stay rooted here at Camp Lejeune. I grew up in North Carolina so it was nice to stay close to home. My husband Glenn, retired from the Marines after 26 years of duty and countless deployments. He continues to work with civil service on the base. We have one daughter, Emilee who just turned 20. She is a beautiful, sweet, lovely young lady. We couldn't be prouder of her! We have a soft spot in our hearts for fur babies...we have 2 dogs, Max and Bella and...a few cats, okay...we have 5 cats, all rescues that we couldn't turn away, Oliver, Jazz, J.C., Beau and Freddy. :) Our house is literally a zoo!
