Prior to that, she was associate administrator for management at VA.

Before joining EPA, she was president of Combs Music International of Winston-Salem and has served on various boards. She holds bachelor's and master's degrees in education from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., and a doctorate in educational administration from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
