High School: I attended Moorefield High School in Moorefield, West Virginia and was very active during my time there. I played basketball, was an active band member and an active 4-H club member as well.

The 4-H club is a club in which kids complete hands-on projects in the areas of health, science agriculture and citizenship.

As a result of being part of the program, I was able to get a job at the telecommunications equipment company, Lucent Technologies.

Past Jobs: I have had many different jobs over the years. Some of these include working for the aforementioned Lucent Technologies, the now-defunct Scott Paper Company and various manufacturing plants that specialized in producing optical fibers.

If I had to choose my most memorable job, I would choose being a hotel receptionist at a national park. I actually got to live in the same hotel that employed me.    

Before Cambridge: I was working over at Hopewell Middle School for almost two years.

At Cambridge: I’m currently the head coach for the reading bowl team and the head sponsor for the I-Bears. I love all that I do here at Cambridge, as I like working with students and teachers and helping with projects or lessons.                                                                                  

Favorite means of entertainment: I enjoy watching the Hallmark channel, “Dancing with the Stars” and “American Idol”.I also enjoy playing card games like ‘Rook” and “Uno”.
