I was born in New Bern, North Carolina. I attended Fayetteville State University, where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I also received my Masters of Science degree in Sport & Health Sciences. I am currently working at Central Carolina Technical College in Sumter, South Carolina, and have been there since 2012. At Central Carolina Technical College, I teach both Anatomy and Physiology courses and the Biological Sciences. My mother is the reason that I am teaching today, because she recognized in me the same passion she has as an educator, and encouraged me to purse this passion. Becoming an educator has been the best decision that I could of ever made. I love to help my students with accomplishing academic goals they never thought they could reach. Each day I am grateful that I get to do what I love, and that is inspiring students to be the best that they can be.
