The Nest Academy Staff
I LOVE living in Charlotte, it has become home to me. I have 3 AMAZING children… Jaden 15, Josiah 13, and Jace 11. They are my world and I am blessed to be mom and headmistress to them as well.
Leadership outreach & discipleship have always been my passion as well as encouraging and inspiring mental physical and spiritual importance in other’s lives! I became a personal trainer to further my expertise, knowledge & experience and LOVE challenging our students and staff to work out, both physically and spiritually!
