Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I am excited to be walking the halls of Elkin High School as your newly appointed Assistant Principal. I graduated from Elkin High School in 2001  then obtained an Associate in Arts degree from Surry Community College, Dobson, NC. After graduating from North Carolina State University in the fall of 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, I came home to my Elkin family in 2006 as an eighth grade English/Language Arts teacher.  The next eleven years were spent in the classroom at Elkin Middle School before making the move to administration. After completing my Master of Arts degree in Executive Leadership Studies from Gardner-Webb University, I spent one year away from ECS as the Assistant Principal at Central Middle School in Dobson, NC.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, David.  We have two girls, Addison (10) and Ava (9).  In our spare time we enjoy cheering on the Wolfpack by watching games on TV or visiting Raleigh.  Our girls keep us busy with travel softball and cheerleading.  

I am humbled and honored to SERVE the students, parents, faculty and community of my hometown.  I am proud to be a product of Elkin City Schools and am looking forward to a wonderful school year.  Everyday is a GREAT day to be a Buckin’ Elk...Go Elks!
