I have been blessed to have always worked in positions where I have been able to help people. Helping people has been the major call in my life. I began my first career as a school teacher. My goal was to provide for students a better relationship with their teacher than I had with many of mine. Because Middle School is such a difficult time in a student's life, I worked for 25 of my 28 years in Middle School. I have taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grades predominantly in English and Math, in McColl, Indian Land, Fort Mill, and Rock Hill, South Carolina. From August 2017 through June 2020, I taught the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing in Rock Hill School District One. My last stop took me to York Comprehensive High School, where I taught Algebra in the ninth grade from August 2020 – December 2020, when I retired from Public School Teaching.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop College, as it was known when I graduated. I have National Board Certification and Re-certification in Early Adolescence English Language Arts. My studies have not all been in the realm of Education. I also have a Master of Business Administration in Information Management from Aspen University. As I knew I would not be in education forever, I planned to use the knowledge gleaned from this Degree in the Business World.
I was brought to Butler and Church Law through a relationship with Audrey Butler, whom I consider to be a mentor. She referred me to Malissa Church for the position of Administrative Assistant. I began with the Firm on January 11, 2021. I am immensely enjoying my position with the firm as I learn something new every day. The position offers me new adventures daily,
which I meet with eagerness. Malissa Church is an incredible attorney who cares for her clients and works diligently to ensure the best possible outcome for their cases. Now, I have two mentors. I am truly blessed.
