New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
I grew up in Greensboro and went to St. Pius X, Kiser and Grimsley (go Whirlies!). I moved away for college and then started my accounting career in Baltimore Maryland. I specialized in non-profit accounting and taxes. I took a break while having my three children but soon made a career change and became a chef.
I worked with my children's elementary school for 12 years. I was on the PTA, Leadership Team and volunteered in the classroom. I also taught cooking classes after school using their Edible School Yard as the inspiration. I still volunteer to cook with classes as teacher ask. It's a great and wonderful day when I get to cook with kids.
I was on the board of the then Aycock Historic District. I held the treasurer position twice in the 11 years we lived there.
I also volunteered for the City Arts Drama Center Booster Club for three years.
Currently, I am the treasurer of Deep Roots Market Co-Op.
Lastly, I like to volunteer to teach the No Kid Hungry Cooking Matters program. It's a wonderful program teaching families and adults on food assistance how to read nutrition labels, meal plan on a budget and how to shop in a grocery store to get the freshest, least processed food available. We do this while learning to cook from a recipe book to broaden minds on what and how to cook. It is one of the most rewarding things I do.
