I am a Virginia native who has run the gamut from Emporia to Virginia Beach, Richmond, Staunton, and now Charlottesville! I am a VCU graduate with a degree in Religious Studies and Nonprofit Management & Administration. I have been an early childhood educator since 2014 and have a passion for continuing education. In my free time I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading, binge watching shows with my husband, and spending time with my family.
