She attended Virginia Intermont College for her Bachelor’s Degree, Milligan College and Union College for Masters in Education and Educational Leadership.

She currently teaches English 12 and AP English online through Niswonger Foundation and is an AP Literature exam reader for College Board, which means every summer she travels to Kentucky, Missouri, or Utah to score between 1,000 and 1,500 exams within a week in June.

They enjoy traveling together and took a month-long trip out West a few years ago.

    The Niswonger Foundation was established in 2001 to make a positive and sustainable difference in education in Northeast Tennessee. This dream was envisioned by Scott M. Niswonger, who founded Landair Transport, Inc. and Forward Air Corporation. These companies were the first two Greeneville-based companies to be taken public in the history of Greene County, Tennessee. Jointly, the companies have combined annual revenue of over one-billion-dollars and employ more than 5000 people.
