I have enjoyed working in a 4-5 year old classroom since 1997, first in my hometown of New Orleans and then later at Cullowhee Kids beginning in 2006. I graduated with a BS in Business from Southern Methodist University and spent almost 10 years working as a CPA until I stumbled into my life’s passion of early childhood education.

My husband and I live in Sylva with our 2 dogs, where we love the beauty of these mountains and look forward to visits from our 2 grown children as well as friends and extended family. When not at school, I like cooking, gardening, hiking, reading, and practicing yoga.

In the classroom, I strive to meet each child where they are in both interest and ability. Nothing

compares to witnessing the joy of experimentation and discovery in a safe and nurturing environment. The responsibility of teaching is enormous and I am grateful to be a part of your child’s educational journey.
