I have been at OBHS for 15 years! I even grew up in OB and attended OB schools myself.

In the past I taught Physical Science, Intro to Biology, Zoology, Marine Biology, Environmental Science, Earth & Space, and Botany. I love science and especially biology.

I attended NWCC and University of Mississippi. I have a degree in Pharmaceutical Science. After I married and started a family I wanted to have better hours to be home with my kids so I took needed classes and obtained my teaching license. 

I have been married for almost 20 years. I have 2 teenagers: Gracie and Colton and they attend OBHS & OBMS
