About Me:
I am a Buncombe County native.  I have lived here all my life (excluding my time in wonderful Boone, NC).  My husband and I love dogs!  Our first dog, Pluto was a hound/lab mix.  Sadly, he passed away in January 2014.  The next month we adopted Clover and Buddy!  Our new children sure are a handful.
I love living and working in the Weaverville community and I am very proud to call North Buncombe home.  I completed my student teaching here at NBHS and I never left! 
Go Black Hawks! 
We also love to cheer for  Appalachian State and Clemson University
