Degrees and Certifications:
Physical Education Teacher
I started working as a PE teacher at OCE in July 2012, and it has felt very much at home with all the wonderful Clippers! I was born in Erlangen, Germany, and lived there until age 28 and then came to North Carolina. I graduated from Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen, and received a MA in Economics and Physical Education, and a Minor in German. I taught Economics and PE for 2 years at a high school in Germany.
I live in Cary with my husband and 17-year old daughter who will attend 12th grade at Apex High School in the fall. My oldest son graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Exercise Science. He is working as a Physical Therapy Assistant after having graduated from South College in Asheville. My younger son graduated from UNCW in 2013. He lives in New York City where he currently works as a Property Manager.
My 2 grandchildren, Tristan (6) and Mia (almost 5) are absolutely delightful!
I enjoy promoting Health and Fitness and am excited to be at OCE to assist our young Clippers develop a healthy attitude towards exercising and nutrition. In my spare time, I love outdoor activities like hiking, biking, running with my Husky and skiing. Reading, gardening and traveling are also on my favorites’ list.
