Bachelors degree major biology from East Carolina University

Master of Science major cellular development from East Carolina University


I completed thirty one years working in the science field before deciding to transfer to teaching.  Fifteen years performing medical research and development, five in medical device research, and ten years performing quality control in the pharmaceutical industry.

I began teaching mainly as a volunteer giving special science programs to my kid's classes/schools then as a part-time substitute teacher in the Wake County system. At this time I decided to change my career from pharmaceuticals to teaching science and started full-time at Jordan Matthews High School in Siler City.  I accepted a teaching position at Eastern Randolph in 2012 where I currently teach classes in biology, physical science, Earth science and AP environmental science.
