I am a lifelong voracious reader with varied interests. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work in the early 1990’s and my Master of Secondary Education with an emphasis in English in 2008. Writing is also a passion of mine. In 2011, I completed the Tidewater Writing Project Summer Institute, which is affiliated with the National Writing Project. Consider me odd, but I have always had a fondness for grammar and spelling. I love to dissect the English language. For the last nine years, I have taught English to middle and high school students and attempted to instill a love of language in them as well.

I am dependable and hard-working; I give everything I do 110%. You can count on me to put in the time and energy to see that the job is done right.
