Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I’m the School Social Worker at Pleasant Grove Elementary and at Parkside Elementary. I grew up in Nash County, NC, and earned my bachelor’s degree in Social Work from NC State University (GO PACK!). Later, I earned my master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University, New York, NY. I have been a school social worker with WCPSS since 2010, and I’ve worked at and helped support many different elementary schools across the county.
I’m the youngest of three children and my parents still live in the same house I grew up in. They’ve also been married almost 50 years! I have one daughter, Cameron, and one fur-baby, Mr. Fluffy. Cameron starts middle school this year, and Fluffy is 2 in human years (😊). I love spending time with my family and watching movies…...LOTS and LOTS of movies! My favorite movie of all time is “The Wizard of Oz” followed by “The Greatest Showman”. I’m very excited to join the Pleasant Grove team this year, and I look forward to collaborating with staff, students, and their families.
My favorite children’s book is any one from the Amelia Bedelia, Berenstein Bears, and Curious George series.
