I am from Northern Virginia originally. However, my husband and I have lived here in Charlotte for almost as long as I lived in Virginia so Charlotte has become my second home.
I earned an undergraduate degree in Management Systems and Information Technology from Virginia Tech, as well as a master’s degree in Positive Organization Development and Change from Case Western Reserve University.
I have several teachers in my family who inspire me, and although my first career was as an Information Technology consultant, I have always wanted to work with children. Part of my studies while working towards my master’s degree sparked my interest in different learning styles and approaching learning not as a one-size-fits-all theory, but as something that can be tailored to the individual. This is something that the British International School of Charlotte does very well, as can be seen in the ambitious achievements of students - from the youngest at 18 months to the high school senior graduating class. When the opportunity to become a learning assistant in the primary years became available, I jumped at the chance. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with primary age children and assist in making their learning a special and unique experience.
My family is very important to me and I love spending time with my son and my husband. I am thrilled that my parents and my brother have also recently relocated to the area. As a family, we enjoy good food, movies and adventures. I also enjoy plenty of coffee and reading in a quiet corner when time allows.
