Welcome to the EGHS Career & College Manager webpage. I am the CCM and I am a proud CTE educator and Eastern Wildcat. Prior to becoming the CCM for Eastern, I taught Technology Education at Eastern Middle and Eastern High and served as the EGHS CTE Department Chair. I love CTE and Eastern because both have given me the opportunity to serve students and to work within a student-centered and caring community of educators and families. As the CCM, I am excited to work with students in preparing them for high-skill, high-wage, and in-demand careers, and I get the chance to work with everyone in our school and lots of people in our community to make career connections for our students.
In my role as the Career & College Manager (CCM), aka the former CDC-SPC, I work with students, parents/guardians, teachers, counselors, business partners, community members, and other stakeholders to facilitate career development activities and work-based learning opportunities for students. Additionally, I am also the Special Populations Coordinator. In this role I work to assist and provide additional academic support to CTE students who are identified within special populations categories by Perkins V or The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (2018).
I have a strong philosophy that education has the power to change lives and broaden perspectives often changing one's entire trajectory. I am a graduate of N.C. A&T State University (BS) "Aggie Pride", Central Michigan University (MSA), and I hold a Doctorate in Divinity from United Cornerstone University. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Ministries degree.
