I am excited to help our students prepare for STEM jobs in the 21st century! I have worked 23 years as a Subject Matter Expert in nuclear safety including broad experience collaborating with scientists, engineers, operators, construction, and maintenance professionals within the Department of Energy, Department of Defense, and OSHA. As an Environmental Safety & Health Radiological First Line Manager responsible for the oversight of nuclear workers, government facilities, and the environment, I have provided expertise in programmatic analysis/implementation, data analysis, and mentoring to various nuclear facilities throughout the country, NASA, and private industry.
As a proud native of Burke County and graduate of Burke County High School, I have earned the following degrees and certifications: Masters in Curriculum & Instruction - Accomplished Teaching, Bachelors in Chemistry Education, AA in Business Administration, Doctorate & Masters in Theology, Bachelors in Biblical Studies, Emergency Medical Technician, Special Government Employee (OSHA), and Nuclear Instructor. I fervently believe that every child has the capacity and desire to learn. Therefore, I have high expectations of each student.
