Growing up in the mountains of rural North Carolina I had dial-up internet as my escape to the rest of the world until I left for college. Much of my own educational exploration & growth took place online.

I'm a believer that students just need a nudge to topics they are already interested in. By exposing students in rural NC to concepts that they might not otherwise have encountered can power their curiosity and help shape their lives.

I've had many great mentors in my own life & this is my way to give back.


My passion for education comes from a desire to share my time, resources, & support for the current generation of students in my hometown.
