About me

I have always had a passion for education and serving my community, which is why I am seeking a second term on the School Board in Ingles. As a Human Resource Director, I bring valuable experience to the table and understand the importance of investing in our children's future. Outside of my career, I have pursued my passion for writing and am currently working on a book that explores how southern ideologies can positively impact the financial success of our children. I have also written a children's book that I hope to have published soon. In addition to my writing endeavors, I am currently taking a course to become a Master Herbalist, as I believe in holistic approaches to wellness. Over the past four years, I have worked diligently to improve the education system in Pulaski County. I have been instrumental in implementing additional security measures in our schools, providing chromebooks to all students, and improving the infrastructure of our schools. I am committed to investing in after-school activities and mentoring programs, as well as focusing on building tutoring programs to support students affected by the pandemic. I truly care about the well-being and success of our youth, and I hope to continue making a positive impact as a member of the School Board.
