I am originally from Raleigh, NC.  I moved to Asheville to attend UNCA and never left this beautiful place.  I began teaching at Erwin in 2012.  I teach Biology, Honors Biology, and AP Environmental Science.  I am a member of Erwin's Literacy Leadership Team, Graduation Project Committee, Testing Team, Data Team, Curriculum Council, and Communications Committee. 

I sponsor the Erwin Eco Club and chair the Steering Committee for YES (Youth for Environmental Stewardship), an organization that connects students from across the county to participate in community service events with Asheville GreenWorks. Along with Mrs. Banks, I maintain Erwin's Pollinator Gardens.  My hobbies include gardening, reading, hiking, and bird watching.
