Originally from the Harrisburg/Hershey area in PA, I’m the mother of two CFCI students (one in 3rd grade, and one rising Kindergartener), and I come from a child psychology background. I met my husband, Wayne (a Chapel Hill alum), while we both worked as child & family therapists in Goldsboro, NC in the mid ‘90’s. When we relocated to Wilmington in 2002, I was privileged to be among the first hired for New Hanover County’s school-based mental health program. In the school setting, I got to know kids in their “natural” environment and saw how they thrived when their emotional needs and individual strengths were factored into their learning, and how much they thrived on learning “experiences.” So when it came to our own children’s education, CFCI was our first choice, and we were lucky enough to get in through the lottery. Being a TA and spending my days at our wonderful school is a welcome career shift, and I’m grateful to be a full-time part of the family!
