In 2020, I obtained my Master in Art Education degree from Converse College. In 2019, I was elected to the South Carolina National Board Network Board of Directors and will be serving on the board for the next two years. I represented SCNBN in Washington, D.C. advocating for education on Capitol Hill with senators from South Carolina. In 2018-19, I had the honor of representing Moore as Teacher of the Year and Florence 1 Schools as District Teacher of the Year. In 2012, I became a National Board Certified Teacher. In 2004, I became a certified visual arts teacher after a successful career in architectural non-residential interiors design in Dallas, Texas for fifteen years. In 1977, I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Interior Design.
As an artist, my favorite media for artwork are clay, stone, and photography. I consider myself a potter, a sculptor, and a photographer. In 2014 and 2017, my photography was accepted and shown at the Lake City ArtFields competition.
I have two adult children. My son graduated from Francis Marion University in 2015. He is a fiction writer and songwriter. My daughter graduates from the University of Tennessee Veterinary School of Medicine in May 2021.
I have three pets, Leo the bird, and two cats...Monty and Penny.
And yes, I am a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan. Go 'Boys! Please understand, it is a matter of geography!
