Who is your favorite teacher?

Mrs. Horner from sixth grade is my favorite teacher. She helped me to see potential in myself and how knowledge really is power. That year I became a spelling bee champion and discovered my love for reading. To this day I read one to two books a week.

Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

I really am in awe of what NIET stands for. Our mission and values are not just an empty statement; it's something that is strived for every day. It's very rewarding to be a part of this organization and contribute by providing a resource for employees and empower them so they can remain focused on their duties for education with teachers and students.

What do you do in your free time?

I am a family-centered person, so I really love connecting with my two children and learning what new things are happening in their lives. I also enjoy photography, playing board games or cards, traveling (especially to the beach), spending time with friends and family, or catching a Nashville Predators game.
