I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in English Education from The University of Mississippi (Go Rebs!), and I also have certification in Gifted Education and Advanced Placement English Language and Composition.
I have lived in DeSoto County my whole life, and I am proud to call it my home. It is a blessing that I get to teach in such a wonderful community. Some of my former teachers at OBMS and OBHS are who inspired me to become a teacher myself; I have been called to this job profession, and it is my hope that I can inspire my students as well to pursue their passion for a particular career. I attended school for a few years at Sacred Heart and then spent the majority of my school years at Olive Branch where I graduated.
I've been married for five years and love everything about my nerdy husband Andy. In my spare time (which is very little), I am usually found taking my corgi GUS on his daily walk, spending time with my family, reading from my endless stack of books, or watching sports (all kinds). I also enjoy drawing and traveling.
I grew up playing basketball and softball, but ended up being a volleyball player through my high school career. I love going to see my students play and perform in their extracurricular activities. I currently attend Fellowship Memphis, where I enjoy fellowship and worship with fellow believers.

Oh, I particularly like goats, too!
