She started as the Tutor Program Manager at Skyline Literacy before becoming the Executive Director in 2011. She has a B.S. degree in management and organization development and professional certificates in nonprofit management and adult education.   In 2013, she received the Nancy F. Jiranek award from the Virginia Literacy Foundation for Outstanding Executive Director.
