Executive Board

2024-2025 Executive Board Members

Amanda Davis – President  – Forsyth Tech CC

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA and then lived in Maryland for many years.  I landed in North Carolina to study at Elon earning BS and BA degrees in math and piano.  I followed that with an MA in mathematics from Wake Forest University.  I spent 18 years working as a paralegal and teaching math and piano part-time before coming back to teach full-time mathematics at Forsyth Technical Community College.  In the few years I have been in this position, I have worked to globalize a statistics course, develop open educational resources to provide access for all students, and mentor research students in our STEM Alliance program.  Outside of work, I enjoy reading, cooking and eating great meals, gardening, and catching live music when I can!

Jay Martin – President-Elect Wake Technical CC

Laurie Keatts – Past President  – Catawba Valley CC

I grew up in western Massachusetts before attending Virginia Tech for my undergraduate curriculum.  I earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics and went on to work as an engineer in manufacturing for over a decade.  In 2007, I began my Master in Social Work from Appalachian State University with the intention of becoming a private practice therapist.  However, during my graduate program, I found myself teaching mathematics part-time for Catawba Valley Community College, and knew then that I wanted to make this my career.  I completed my Master in Social Work in 2010, plus enough graduate hours in mathematics to teach both Math and Sociology at CVCC.  I am passionate about Equity and am the Southeastern Representative of the AMATYC Equity Committee.  I have two beautiful daughters, and in my spare time, I love music and baking.

Nolan Outlaw – Eastern Region VP – Wake Tech CC

I earned an MA in Mathematics from ECU in 2016 and have been a full-time math instructor at Wake Tech Community College since then. NCMATYC has been such an amazing organization for my teaching career, and I am thrilled to be serving as Eastern Vice President. It is my hope to ensure that NCMATYC continues to be that valuable resource for all community college math teachers across North Carolina. I was a member of Cohort 15 of AMATYC’s Project ACCCESS from 2018-2019, and I served as the chair for AMATYC’s Math and its Applications for Careers Committee from 2020-2021. My wife (also a math teacher at Wake Tech) and I have two amazing children, and outside of work, I enjoy spending time with our kids, eating at fun restaurants, and playing board games and card games.

Vicki Todd – Treasurer – Southwestern CC

I fell in love with math as a teenager and now have the honor of teaching others. When I started at Southwestern Community College, I was given the opportunity to attend my first NCMATYC conference as an adjunct and have been in love with the organization ever sense. I would be honored to be your treasurer.
