I am running to serve on the Pitt County Board of Education (District 5). Pitt County has been my home for 22 years. My husband and I have 3 children who all attend Pitt County Public Schools. I moved to Greenville, North Carolina in 2000 to join colleagues at East Carolina University in writing and launching the first nationally accredited doctoral program in Medical Family Therapy. With almost 50 graduates since 2008, the program is a tremendous success! I am also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist trained to work with individuals, couples, families, and systems to achieve the changes they seek. My record volunteering for and working in pre-k, elementary, middle, high schools, and early college settings stands on its own. I will be bringing that same work ethic, collaborative skill set, and tenacity used throughout my career to the
Pitt County Board of Education!
My mission is to support Pitt County Schools in innovating, elevating, and growing while working to ensure each child and teacher has the resources needed to thrive.
~Change that impacts our community must be done with our community~
Thoughtfully design and implement equitable policies and programs that prepare all students for success in a rapidly changing world.
Refocus our passion to ensure our schools are safe, well-resourced, and environmentally friendly places for all students and teachers to thrive and feel a sense of belonging.
