    Further Info:

    Middle school Business, Finance, and IT educator with Rowan Salisbury Schools in North Carolina, as well as an adjunct faculty member at a local community college. After a career in office management and financial services, I completed a lateral entry into the classroom. I challenge myself and my students by exploring and learning new curricula, software, and applications and sharing these experiences in professional development workshops as well as in the classroom. I piloted the Creative Coding through Games and Apps curriculum in North Carolina and am a Microsoft approved CCGA Implementation Trainer. In addition to an MBA in Business Administration, Management and Strategy, I earned a post-bac Certificate in Information Technology. I am the North Carolina Association for Career and Technical Education president elect for 16-17, and am an advocate for CTE education at the state and national level. I have been a volunteer Guardian Ad Litem since 2000, advocating for abused and neglected children in Rowan County.
