My pursuit of God’s glory and my love of science have led me to this opportunity to teach General Science at Utmost Academy. I’ve taught God’s Word to children from ages 3-12 for 15 years. Most recently, I have been blessed and have learned much while teaching 9-12 year olds for 2 hours each week while studying the book of Daniel and Revelation with Community Bible Study.

I earned a bachelors of science in animal and poultry science at Virginia Tech in 1998 and a masters of science from the Virginia/Maryland Regional college of Veterinary medicine in 2002. I met and married my husband at Tech during my graduate studies. The Lord then provided a full time position as a scientist at the Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services of Virginia where I used my research and laboratory experience to help determine causes of food-borne outbreaks. While working at the state laboratory, I was promoted to a senior scientist position in the food microbiology department. After working at the state laboratory for 10 years, the Lord Jesus clearly called me home to disciple and educate our 3 children. This is my eleventh year of homeschooling and my first senior will graduate in June 2022. God’s faithfulness has kept me in awe of His works of wonder both in my life and in His world around us. I enjoy sharing my faith while working fervently to advance God’s kingdom.
