I grew up in Salem, Virginia but moved to Raleigh in 1989 and it feels like home now. I came to Wiley 20 years ago as a parent and have worked here for 16 years. Wiley feels like home, too.
I love to travel and have made international journeys to Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, London, England, Matanzas, Cuba and most recently to Belfast, Northern Ireland. In the US my favorite places to go, so far, are to the Pacific North West and to visit my family in Missouri.
I am inspired daily by the smiling faces and kind hearts of the children at Wiley. I like to engage in activities within my community that promote peace and justice and can sometimes be found at protest rallies. When at home, I love to walk around Lake Johnson and read books. My favorite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
