About Me!

I’m a native of Raleigh, NC, a wife and mother of five. I'm proud to have two Aliman graduates and three who will be students this year. I’m a graduate of Athens Drive High School (Raleigh, NC) where I was a three sport athlete; volleyball, basketball & softball. I attended Barton College (Wilson, NC), where I received a Bachelor Degree in Mathematics and was a 4 year member of the women’s basketball program. I have successfully directed the Al-Iman Girls Basketball Program since 2005 and currently teah PE to 1st-8th grades. I am an active volunteer member of my community, currently as IAR Sports & Recreation Executive Chairperson since 2015. I believe it is important to develop, groom, and mentor our youth through various programs like sports, health & fitness. I am happy to be back with Al-Iman School Physical Education Department and look forward to a great 2021-2022 school year.
