Welcome to Animal Science and Horticulture here at Central Cabarrus! I am excited to be working with the students here at Central. Currently on campus we have 5 animals at our barn. We have 4 goats named Derek, Goose, Nova, and Bambi. We also have a pig named Spooky. This school year we will be utilizing Canvas for all classwork and activities. 

I am originally from Union County and went to school at North Carolina State University getting a degree in Agriculture Education with a minor in Horticulture. I enjoy spending time outside in our yard planting flower gardens in front of the house.
