PERSONAL INFO

FUN FACTS

  • I love working at Cottingham Chalk because the family-like culture is fun and so supportive!

  • I love that Charlotte has a mix of people from across the globe, the exploding restaurant scene and the world-class arts.

  • For a quick getaway, you can’t beat Charleston for the coast or Asheville if the mountains are calling you. We are spoiled being so close to both!

  • Exploring the world (near and far) with my husband and two daughters is what I love to do with my free time. We love to connect with new cultures and people.

  • I am an energy healer. I use ancient techniques from Japan and other indigenous cultures and spiritual traditions to assist the body’s innate healing mechanisms. And healing the energy in a house can be transformative for all its inhabitants!
