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!
