As a McDowell County native, I am pleased to be serving my 37th year as a biology instructor at McDowell Early College. I earned my Bachelor of Science, Master's Degree, and Science Specialist Degree at Appalachian State University. In addition to sharing my love for the biological sciences with North Carolina students, I have worked as a teacher trainer and consultant for the North Carolina Biotechnology Center and for two major scientific companies for over two decades. I also served as a Master Teacher at the Genetics Science Learning Center at the University of Utah for three years working on their Genetics of Addiction Module (
I am National Board certified in Young and Adolescent Science.
