I am starting my second year with Transylvania County Schools. I grew up in Brevard, so I have enjoyed being back in the community.

In my free time, I am most likely outdoors. My favorite activities are kayaking, hiking, running, or going for a walk. On the weekends you can find me on my front porch in a rocking chair, reading a book.

I do have a black cat! His name is Boone, very original, I know. I got him when I was in college, so it only made sense to name him after one of my favorite places.
