I am a native of Perquimans County. Since I was a sophomore in high school, my dream has been to become a speech-language pathologist and work with students in the school setting. I decided to pursue this passion by attending East Carolina University, where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders in May 2010 and a Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology in May 2012. I have been working with Perquimans County Schools since August 2012. I have a strong desire to help children within our community develop their speech and language skills, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to do so on a daily basis. Some other hobbies and interests include being outside, crafting and woodwork, playing guitar, and spending time with my family. My husband and I recently welcomed our first child into the world, a baby girl, in July 2016. She has absolutely stolen our hearts!
