Introduction:
I am excited to start here at CVGS as a biology teacher!  For the past 13 years I have been employed by Lynchburg City Schools and have worked at E. C. Glass as a biology teacher.  I have taught 9th grade Biology, Biology 2: Anatomy & Physiology, Advanced College Biology, and AP Biology during my tenure at E. C. Glass.  I have also taught summer school biology as well as acting as the Dual Enrollment Facilitator for ECG.  Since 2009 I have been an adjunct instructor at CVCC teaching BIO 101, 102 as well as a full time online instructor with Liberty University for BIOL 101 and INFT 101.

I will be teaching Anatomy and Physiology to seniors this school year as well as acting as a Research Mentor for various research topics.  I will be conducting some Senior Tech Seminars in SEM, Microbiology, and Biotechnology.

Educational Background:
Undergraduate: Liberty University – Bachelor of Science with a Major: Biology, Minor: Chemistry with Secondary Teacher Licensure

Graduate: University of Nebraska Kearney – Master’s of Science in Biology

Personal Background:
My father served 20 years in the Navy so I spent my childhood moving around about every 4 years.  I was born in Maine, but also lived in Guam, Hawaii, and Massachusetts before my dad retired and we moved to Virginia.  

I am married to the physics teacher here at CVGS, and we have 3 children.  Two are attending Forest Elementary School and our 3rd was born in August of 2013.  We love taking vacations at theme parks and riding roller coasters.  My older kids are in a number of different sports (soccer, tennis, swimming, and gymnastics) so that keeps us pretty busy.  My hobbies are playing board games with the family, soccer, volleyball, card games and obsessively reading any fiction book that I can get my hands on.
