My mission is to bring science to life for students in my Earth/Environmental and Biology classroom setting. In doing this I look forward in preparing students for their future science related areas in college or in their careers.
I graduated from North Iredell High School in 1995 and begin my college career at Mitchell Community College where I received an Associates Degree in Pre-Liberal Arts. I transferred to Western Carolina University and finished up my college career receiving a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health. I practiced Environmental Health in Iredell County for 16 years and have maintained my state and national Registered Environmental Specialist status enabling me to bring this experience to the classroom.
In my spare time I work in my Muscadine and Scuppernong vineyard located in North Iredell. I also spend any other free time fishing in the New River, surf fishing on the Outer Banks or participating in any other activities that gets me outdoors and into nature.
I am blessed to be married to a wonderful wife. I have two step-children, a 16 and 19 year old, and we also have a very energetic 5 year old son.
I'm proud to be a Greyhound! I look forward in teaching my students a firm foundation of science for their success in the future!
