Executive Board

2016-18 Board Members

Luke Walsh – President  – Catawba Valley CC


I graduated from Indiana University in 2000 and then began teaching 8th grade mathematics at a small rural school in North Carolina. After five years in the public education system, I took a break to hike the Appalachian Trail. In 2007, I earned a masters in mathematics from Appalachian State University, and since then I have been a full-time mathematics instructor at Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC).  When I am not in the classroom, I love camping with the family, visiting breweries, playing disc golf, and graphing mathematics.

Laura Taylor – President Elect – Cape Fear CC

Glynis Mullins – Past President – Pitt CC


I have been teaching Developmental Math at Pitt CC since 2002. For the past 7 years, I have been the Developmental Math Coordinator.  I graduated in 1991 with a B.S in Mathematics from Elizabeth City State University. I recently received a Masters of Education in Curriculum/Instruction from Central Michigan University in 2016. Also finishing a masters in Education in Technology (2017).   I have served on the NCMATYC Board since 2010 as Eastern VP (2010-2012), Pres-Elect (2012-2014), President (2014-2016), and finally Past President (2016-2018).

Tammy Sullivan – Western Region VP – AB Tech CC

tammy_picI started teaching in 1988.  I am currently at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.  NCMATYC is a wonderful organization and great resource.  I am excited to give back to something I gain so much from.


Amanda Klinger – Central Region VP – Davidson CC

amanda_picThis is my 13th year teaching at Davidson County Community College.  I teach on the Davie campus, a satellite campus of DCCC, which means I am the only math teacher on my campus.  I have pretty much taught all of the math courses, but I would have to say that Statistics is my favorite.  In the little spare time I have, I enjoy playing recreational co-ed volleyball and reading.  I am proud to be part of NCMATYC!

Jay Martin – Eastern Region VP – Wake Tech CC

Beth Tsai – Secretary – Wake Tech CC

Heather Barker – Treasurer – Elon University

I graduated from Meredith College in 2006 and started teaching high school mathematics at the same high school I graduated from in rural Caswell County.  After 2 years of teaching high school I decided to return to school and completed my Master’s in Pure Mathematics at UNCG.  In 2010 I started teaching at Piedmont Community College and taught there full time for five years.  While there I focused mainly on developing coursework for Quantitative Reasoning and Statistics.  I left PCC in 2015 to start teaching at Elon University.   At Elon teach General Statistics and Business Calculus.  I really enjoy being a part of NCMATYC as a way to get new ideas in the classroom and help the mathematics community in NC communicate and share with one another across the state.
