I began my career as a high school special education teacher working with students who had learning disabilities and behavioral difficulties.  I worked in that capacity for 4 years, while also coaching soccer, tennis, and basketball.  After obtaining my speech and language degree, I began working for a private practice providing speech and language services to adults with head injuries.  During this time I really missed working with children, so I headed back to the NC school system where I have been a therapist for 17 years now.  I enjoy working with children as they develop positive communication skills necessary to understand and participate in the world around them. 


My family and I moved to Swansboro in August of 2008.  Prior to that, I lived and worked in Boone, NC for 14 years where the snow was plentiful.  I have an awesome family who loves to laugh and have fun.  My husband, Doug, teaches math and coaches the soccer teams at Swansboro High School.  He won back to back State Championships with the girls in 2009 and 2010, and again in 2013!  Go Pirates!  We have two really cool kids, Tripp and Caroline, who enjoy going on the boat and playing soccer, of course.
