Although I was born and raised in Greenville, SC and love the mountains, I have thoroughly enjoyed living at the coast for the past 25 years with my husband Pat. We have 4 children. Patrick is a graduate of the US Naval Academy and is now an officer with the U.S. Marine Corps. Mary Catherine is a Senior at Clemson University. Covey is in the 9th grade at WHS and Anna Margaret is in the 6th grade at WIS. I love being around children and am delighted to be able to teach here at WES. I truly believe we are blessed to be one of the most wonderful schools in this area due to the strength of our staff, our parents, our delightful students and our supportive community. When not at school, I enjoy reading, being at the beach, attending our childrens' sporting events, going to Clemson and WHS football games, and spending time with our PBOC church family.
