Degrees and Certifications:
A Pennsylvania native, I have called North Carolina home for the last 10 years. I began my teaching career in Greensboro, where I taught 3rd Grade for 8 years. After a move to the City of Oaks in 2013, I taught as an Intervention Specialist at nearby Sycamore Creek Elementary and taught at Laurel Park Elementary in Apex. The choice to teach at Pleasant Grove is driven by the proximity to my home and the excitement of creating a school community. I strive to create a safe, caring and engaging learning environment, which encourages students to believe in themselves and to do their personal best. I feel lucky to be part of the community at PGES and am looking forward to working with my group of young scholars, dedicated parents, and a new staff that will go above and beyond to make you proud to be a Flyer! Aside from teaching, I am also a licensed Real Estate Agent with a local firm. I am always on the lookout for new clients and love working in the industry. You may also catch me supporting local restaurants, hiking at Umstead Park, or spending time with my husband and 3 year old son, Cash.
