Gretchen originally from Ohio but has lived in North Carolina for almost 20 years. She has two bachelors degrees, one in nursing and one in psychology. Originally she worked as a pre-k teacher and at NHRMC as a pediatric nurse. She loves working with children, especially the younger ones! They have such an energetic zest for life that is contagious and inspiring . She has been married to her husband, Trey, for almost ten years. Together they have two amazing daughters, Maggie (6) and Natalie (almost 2). They live in Hampstead with our elderly dog and cat. She enjoys running, leading her daughter's Girl Scout troop (she's got cookies!), and spending time outdoors with her family Currently she is also in the process of going back to school to obtain her B-K & K-6 teaching license. We are SO excited to have her at The Nest there is so much enthusiasm she brings to our classroom! Plus we just LOVE her shirt!
