After graduating from St. Mary’s College, I finished my undergraduate studies at UNC-CH with BS degree in Economics and Master’s in Biomechanics. While in graduate school, I was involved in the start up of a company called Isotechnologies that designed and manufactured quantitative muscle testing and range of motion machines. When Isotechnologies was sold, I moved to Pinehurst where I worked as a real estate broker until my second child was born. I am currently part owner and serve on the Board of Directors for Holt Oil Company. Since my college years, I have also worked part time as a Fitness/Yoga Instructor and Personal Trainer at various gyms. I have been teaching classes at First Health since 1993 and teach regularly at Southern Pines Yoga Company. In 2012, I began volunteering at MHS with the intent to give back to an organization whose mission and core values were dear to my heart. It immediately became apparent that the love and immense joy I received from our homeless pets far outweighed anything I could possibly give. Two of these pets, Isabella and Bubbie Boy, became a part of our family. The gratitude one feels when caring for and loving our homeless pets is greatly magnified when these precious animals find true happiness in their forever homes. I am very thankful to be a small part of the large and visionary efforts of Moore Humane Society.
