About Me

I began a career in radio broadcasting in 1986 that continued until 1996. In 1989 I also began working in education. Eventually education became my full-time passion, leading to work in Virginia and North Carolina school districts. In 2005 I accepted a position with Wingate University as a librarian in the Ethel K. Smith Library.

My hobbies include photography, interior design, genealogy, and visiting bed and breakfast establishments. I have two super-cool adult children, a loving husband, and three of the quirkiest dogs you’ll ever meet.
