I was born and raised in the small, rural town of Morganton, in western NC. As a young 'tomboy', I grew up in a male-dominated neighborhood where I partook in athletic endeavors that inevitably led me to become a 4-sport letterman in High School. I graduated from Freedom High School in 1991, a U.S. Army Scholar-Athlete (given each year to one male and one female for outstanding achievement in both areas) , as well as a member of the Vocational Honor Society. Moreover, I received scholarships in both Basketball and Volleyball to attend High Point University, located in High Point, NC. While there, I was elected to receive the Jessica T. Fogle Scholarship in Art, was a member of the Art Club, a member of the Van Gogh Society, and a 1996 graduate with a B.A. in Art and a Minor in Secondary Education. Additionally, I was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes as Publicity Officer, often awarded the Millis Scholar/Athlete award each semester, many times included on the Dean's List, as well as voted Who's Who Among American Colleges and Universities.
Currently, I reside in TX. I am an avid Duathlete who also enjoys mountain biking, working out, and motorcycling.

And how the blue casts your radiance for others to see!... more »


My Dandelion; From what sun-kissed breeze did you arrive?
Sweeping through my hair and across my lips,
Ever so gently fondling my heart.
Your softness eludes me like the darkness of a midnight sky.... more »
