Lead Teacher

My husband Brian and I have lived in the Rock Hill area for 13 years. We have four children, ages 24 to 8. Brian is in construction management for a company based in Charlotte, and I am excited to be returning to ODS. 


When I have free time, I love to read! My newest interest is historical fiction. I also enjoy being active at my children’s schools. As a family, we love to travel, especially to the mountains, movies, and going out to eat. 


I adore the preschool ages! They are little sponges, and even the smallest discovery can light them from within! 


My favorite verse is : "She is clothed with strength and dignity;

    she can laugh at the days to come."

Proverbs 31:25

Assistant Teacher

I have two girls ages 6 and 8. I love thrift shopping, traveling, spending time with my family, and trying new restaurants. 

I love teaching preschool because I get to love on children and their families. I am reminded every day how much of a privilege it is to spend time learning, laughing, and playing with these precious littles!

My favorite verse is John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
