I am excited about my current position as Principal of The Children’s Center. I have travelled many places but I call North Carolina home. I have a heart for children and education is my passion. I have 25 years of experience in education. My husband, Arthur, and I have four children and three grandchildren. In my spare time I am active in my husband’s ministry and our church. I love entertaining and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people.
My husband has a motorcycle. I just love riding with him!
