What do you most enjoy about your work?

I relish each opportunity I have to help others build their skills and knowledge to improve themselves, their business, and their communities. From taking on new learning initiatives to overcoming old software limitations, I thrive on finding logical yet creative solutions to our clients’ challenges.


I love heirloom gardening and, as an extension of this hobby, serve my community as an NC State Extension Master Gardener Volunteer. I also enjoy taking on home renovation projects, giving cooking lessons to my two grown children, and spending time with my husband and our corgi, Charlie.
