I am originally from Virginia Beach (Kempsville). However, Smithfield was like a second home because my dad's family is from here. Graduated from Longwood University then began teaching PE/Health for Isle of Wight County. I have taught all my years at Smithfield Middle School. My family and I are big Virginia Tech Hokie fans!!!! I've wanted to be a PE/Health teacher since I was in 7th grade. Love working with the middle school age students.
