I grew up in New Hampshire and following high school, I enlisted and served four years in the United States Air Force. When I reached the end of my tour, I moved to North Carolina where I married and had two children.
My son recently enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and my daughter is a high school junior. I have a German Shepherd named Max, cat named Peekaboo, three turtles, and a tarantula named Phoebe.
My interests include swimming, reading, creative writing, photography (see the slide show on my home page), and gardening.
My first career, following my military enlistment, was in healthcare. My interest in a teaching led me to earn my Bachelor of Arts in English, with Honors, from the University of Phoenix.
I am currently earning my Master Degree in Education from the University of Phoenix.
I continuously pursue traditional and nontraditional educational opportunities and will be a lifelong learner.
