To start a conversation with me, ask me: About my kids, my work, reading, cooking, most anything!

Something interesting most people don't know about me: I'm an occasional pageant judge, most recently for the 2016 NC Strawberry Festival. My family has been involved with the NC Rhododendron Festival for most of my life. This is one of the state's oldest agricultural festivals and celebrates the world's largest natural rhododendron garden atop Roan Mountain.

Favorite activity/ hobby outside of work: Spending time with family, college athletics, reading, cooking, and crocheting.
