Hometown: Lexington, SC

About Me: I have been in the Columbia area by entire life, and spent the first 13 years of my career teaching high school mathematics. Though I fully embrace being a math nerd, I was also a dance minor in college and taught dance at several studios in Columbia. Though I consider myself a retired dancer now, I still take a weekly tap class and love a good barre workout. My favorite weekends are spent with my husband and friends in the mountains or at the lake. I am so excited to be back home at USC!
