I am a Sumter native, having graduated from Sumter High in 2005. I received my B.M.E. from Winthrop University in 2010 and began teaching music, choir and steel drums at Wilder Elementary for 5 years. This is my third year at Willow Drive. I sing and teach children's music at First Presbyterian Church. I play trombone with the Sumter Community Band and Jazz Band. I am married to the ADMS choir director and we have one daughter, Gwendolen.
