I was born and raised in Florida, and completed my undergraduate degree at Florida State University “Go Noles!” My husband is also a Florida native, but we decided to leave the world of constant summer behind and moved to Nashville, TN in search of seasons and snow.
It was in Tennessee that we welcomed our first son to the world. While in TN, I attended Graduate school at Bethel University to obtain my MBA with a concentration in HR while working in the field I adore. During that time, I also studied and obtained my SPHR and SHRM-SCP credentials in HR.
Shortly after, we decided the mountains was where we wanted to be and we left the ‘tourist’ status behind and moved to Asheville, NC becoming residents of this wonderful area. It was then that I joined WNC and Blue Ridge Group Homes with the objective of establishing the HR Department to combine the two organizations as a part of the affiliation process.
After two years with the organization my husband and I welcomed our second son to the world. We now enjoy our time together in the constant chaos of Nerf guns, Legos, and the great outdoors. We are truly happy to call Asheville our home and share this wonderful area with our two boys.
Over my career I have worked in Local Government, School Boards, and for Large Corporations. I am truly proud of the work that our organization does for the community and thankful that I can be a part of that cause. It warms my heart to be able to do the work I love and to search for dedicated individuals to join us in our endeavors of making a difference in people’s lives everyday.
