I have been working here at Hanger Hall since 2014 and feel lucky to be surrounded by wonderful, caring people! I also love that my job feels different every day! I wear a lot of hats here and get to work with both wonderful parent volunteers and students. The best part of my job is getting to plan and go on class trips! I also plan many of our school’s events and take students on volunteer outings in the community.
I graduated from UNC-CH (Go Heels!!) and while there, I focused my studies on communications and the environment. In one way or another, I have been an educator since graduating. I have been lucky enough to work with youth in many different fields, including teaching environmental education to middle school students in California, leading backpacking trips in Washington, and running an after-school program here in Asheville.
In my free time I love reading, gardening, biking, swimming, running, seeing live music, and spending time in the beautiful mountains surrounding our sweet little city. I have three young daughters that keep me wonderfully busy, and I love to play outside with them whenever possible.
