I am a product of Cherokee Schools. I lived in Painttown for most of my life, but now reside in the Wolfetown community. I was fortunate to be able to go to the University of NC at Chapel Hill and graduated with my Bachelor's degree. I also attended Western and received my teaching certification there. This will be my 25th year working at CES. I have three children, two dogs, and several cats. I enjoy doing things with my family, reading, and traveling when I can. I really like turtles, UNC, and of course, the Braves!!
