As a child, I wanted a job focused on helping people. Throughout my years in the workforce, that drive led me to work in social services, retail, the restaurant industry and even a job with the 2010 Census. It was there that I discovered a love of training people, teaching individuals and seeing them grow. I thrived on the challenge of leading my census team and helping them overcome the difficulties of the job. A life-long learner, I returned to Lincoln Memorial University where I had completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology and completed my Master of Education in 2013. Currently, I help promote the community I love and work with local businesses and community leaders to envision a plan of success for our home.
