    Summarize your experience and specialties:

    I grew up in Boone and finished high school in Durham. After high school, I took a gap year to work and travel before going to college down in Atlanta. Once I graduated, I worked there for a couple of years and then decided to come back to NC to complete my Master’s in TESOL. I taught middle school for three years after earning my degree. I spent July 2016-July 2017 in Australia and came back to North Carolina in time for the 2017-2018 school year, joining the Union Hill family. I am delighted to be a Tiger. In my free time I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new foods.
