Personal Bio

I married my high school sweetheart and have three children, three dogs, and one cat. I love spending time outdoors camping with my family, taking a walk, or going swimming. When my kids are asleep you will most likely find me cozied up with a good book. My favorite vacation is taking a ferry to Bear Island in Swansboro, North Carolina in the summer heat. Growing up, my parents always inspired me to advocate for children with varying needs which led me to my career choice in Special Education. I remember in second grade I made a Valentine’s Day card using Braille for a friend in my class so she could read her Valentine’s Day card without support from her aide. My goal in life is to make a positive impact on others to help them recognize their potential. I stand true to our motto at Achievement House, “Failure is not an option.”
