I am the Pre-K Part Day Structured teacher at Oakview.  I have a passion for teaching young children, and I bring over 20 years of teaching experience.  I began my career teaching at a camp for differently abled kids and adults.  I completed my internship at the Emory Autism Resource Center. My first classroom was a self-contained kindergarten in Cobb County, GA.  While my husband was pursuing his master's degree, I taught in Auburn City Schools as a Resource teacher.  I found my way back to a self-contained classroom at Davis Drive Elementary when we relocated to North Carolina.  When my children were young, I taught online classes for GCF and for the last 8 years, I was the Pre-K teacher at Cary Presbyterian Preschool.  I am also a certified yoga instructor and currently teach at Yoga Garden Pittsboro. 

I am originally from Hawaii and have lived in Alaska, California, Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama.  My husband and I moved to North Carolina in 2001 and we love being close to the mountains and the beaches.  I enjoy yoga, reading, and gardening.  My happy place is on my paddle board!
