I am a Training Generalist with the Continuous Improvement, Staff Development and Engagement Team here in the Service Center of Excellence. We provide trainings and training resources to a variety of departments here at UNC. Simply put, I do a little bit of everything!
What did you do before you came to the SCE?
I worked for North Carolina Public Schools as a middle school teacher for 12 years in the little town of Southport. I taught Language Arts and Social Studies in grades 6-8 and during my tenure mastered the art of endurance and patience.
What is your favorite part of working at SCE?
As part of the CISDE team, we touch many areas within the University. I like that my job affords me the opportunity to meet and interreact with new people almost daily, and that I am able to work on such a vast variety of projects. I like that I am constantly learning.
In my free time you might find me in my garage rehabbing old furniture, or headed to the beach to see my 95 year old grandmother (seen in picture) and to kick back and relax.
What is something people probably wouldn’t know about you, or another fun item you’d like to share?
After almost 7 years of piano lessons, my piano teacher fired me. She told my mom I was too stubborn, and only wanted to do things my way. She concluded that “she was wasting her time, and my mom was wasting her money.”
