I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education in 1983 from Clemson University, and I received a MEd in Education Leadership from Clemson in 1987. At the end of the 2021-22 school year, I will have completed thirty-eight years of experience in education. Thirty-seven of my thirty-eight have been spent serving students and families in Greenwood District 52. I have a passion for seeing young people achieve and come back to our community to serve alongside me. It gives me a great sense of joy to see many of the students I worked with enter the education field and teach in Ninety Six. My job has been a large portion of my life for many, many years, and I cannot imagine myself being anywhere else but here. When I am not working, I enjoy all Clemson sporting events. Lately, I have had the pleasure of being a GG to three biological grandchildren and two other grandchildren that I call my own. My family is a vital part of my life. I have been truly blessed in many ways personally and professionally in my lifetime. I look forward to many more years serving Greenwood District 52 students, staff, and families.
