Hello! I am so excited to join the NDA team this year. The dedicated staff and students make this school truly incredible.

I grew up in Dayton, OH and Greensboro, NC and received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Appalachian State University where I studied first English and later College Student Development and Professional School Counseling.  Go Apps!

My professional background is in college admissions, student services work at the collegiate level, and school counseling.  I have previous experience as an elementary school counselor in Burke County and a high school c
ounselor here in Asheville at A.C. Reynolds High School and Owen High School. 


I enjoy running and all activities which bring peace to the chaos of life. When not working, I can be found with my husband and our two young daughters, who definitely keep us on our toes! Murphy and Nibbles, our belove
d animal family, would likely be sad if I didn't mention them here as well.
