Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to Charlotte nineteen years ago. Having worked with special needs children of all ages in both the public and private sector, I have recently focused my attention working as an elementary teacher assistant. It is my passion to work with this age group because it’s a time in which they are greatly advancing both socially and academically. My husband and I have one daughter who will be graduating from UNCW in December. We enjoy spending time together and being outdoors in the warm Carolina weather.
