Welcome to South Carolina history! I’m excited to get to know each and every one of you and to have a successful year together learning about the history of our wonderful state.

I grew up in Virginia, and after high school moved to Philadelphia to attend college at Temple University (Go Owls!) I received my bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis on history. During college I worked at a literacy-focused after school program for children ages K-12 called Tree House Books, and that was where I first fell in love with teaching. After college I worked as a tour guide of Philadelphia for a little over a year. While I loved living in a big city, I did not love the snow and decided to move to Charleston for warmer weather and a change of pace. I have been living in South Carolina for a little over a year and absolutely loving it.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, watching movies, reading books, and travelling.
