I began my teaching career in the fall of 2001 at Independence High School in Independence, MS, teaching 11th grade English and Pre-Algebra.

In the fall of 2002 I came back to "my home," Olive Branch High School where I have been teaching ever since. Throughout my tenure at OBHS, I have taught 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade English as well as Mythology, Compensatory Reading, SATP Test Remediation, and Journalism/Yearbook.

I also serve as the yearbook sponsor, am in charge of school-wide elections, and the OBHS Homecoming Court.


I have lived in Olive Branch my entire life, and I absolutely love my hometown and school! I am a 3rd generation graduate of OBHS--my grandfather graduated in approximately 1924; my father in 1963; and I graduated in 1993.


I am the mother of three wonderful children who are (and will be) 4th generation graduates of OBHS. Ross, who graduated in 2014, is currently at Delta State University studying Graphic Design; Lauren, who will graduate in 2019, is an active member of the band and power lifting team in addition to numerous clubs and organizations at OB. Daniel, who will graduate in 2026, loves playing basketball, reading, and collecting Pokemon cards.


I am the wife of Greg who is a 1989 graduate of Independence High School. We have been together for 25 years, and married for 23. We currently reside in Olive Branch and live in the house where my father was raised.


As you can see, I am "Olive Branch" through and through. I always tell my students that I bleed blue and gold! Go Quistors!
