Associate of Fine Arts from Caldwell Community College

Bachelor of Art Education from Lenoir-Rhyne University


Taught Art in private school for 14 years.

Teaching public school (K-12 state certification) for 8 years.

Since teaching at Fike High School, 5 Fike art students have been accepted into NC State School of Design.  (This program accepts 28 freshmen from all over the world each year.)


I was raised in western NC where I've lived most of my life.  I moved to Wilson in 2009 to take the position of Visual Arts teacher at Fike High School.  I love art & love teaching so being an art teacher is the perfect blend of both worlds.  Since teaching at Fike, I have had 5 seniors accepted into the prestigious NC State School of Design (only 28 freshmen are accepted into this program each year).In addition to teaching, I give private art lessons after school and during the summer.

 I am also an artist in my own right and am a member of the Wilson Active Artists Association.  I enjoy painting with oils, acylics & watercolors.  In addition, I create with mixed media using fabrics, paper & text.  My personal motto in creating art is "No fear!."
