My husband and I recently celebrated 19 years of marriage, and together we have two children, Austin 18, and 8 yr. old Katie. We are a close knit family that enjoys spending time together. I am a Wilkes Community College graduate earning my Associates Degree in Nursing. I have been a R.N. for 11 years, working 5 of those years on a fast paced medical/surgical floor at Iredell Memorial Hospital. After the birth of my daughter, I began praying for God’s direction concerning my career. I am honored to say He led me here and in March of 2012 I joined the staff of Wilkes Pregnancy Center. I am blessed to be a small part of such an amazing organization.
