1975 Graduate of Carson-Newman College
Retired High School Counselor (Morristown West HS)
Hometown - Oak RIdge, TN Current residence - Morristown, TN
I graduated from Carson Newman in 1975 with a B.S.in Elementary Education.
An unusual memory while at CNC: I retrieved my bicycle out of Philo Hall during the burning of Henderson Hall in January 1974. In additon to that, members of the Philomathean Literary Society carried out of the fire a 6 legged baby grand piano, 37 chairs, the president's chair and a gavel stone and stand (that were saved from the 1916 fire of the Henderson/Administration Building).
Received my M.S. in Educational Psycholoy & Counseling from the Universitiy of Tennessee at Knoxville, TN in 1979.
Began employment as a licensed school counselor until my retirement as a High School Counselor at Morristown West H.S. (TN) in 2006.
I have been employed the last 30 years as a motorcoach tour director with Knoxville Tours, which has allowed me the priviledge and opportunity of traveling in all 50 states, all provinces of Canada and Mexico.
I am now in my 4th year as an Academic Counselor for Student Success in the "Life Directions Center"
I meet and talk with students individually about a variety of issues that relate to being successful in college. I love to talk with students.
I am so blessed to be back at my alma mater that I have always dearly loved.
I look forward to students and faculty making their way to my office on the 3rd floor of Baker to "The Life Directions Center" in room 317.
