Prior to coming to Desoto County last year, I spent five years teaching and coaching in Missouri.  I spent my first three years teaching PE, health, and weight training classes at Holcomb Jr./Sr. High School.  I was the head volleyball coach, head jr. high baseball coach, and assistant varsity baseball coach. 
My last two years were spent at Portageville High School where I taught World History and Geography.  In addition to teaching, I was the asst. middle school football coach and Head Varsity baseball coach. 
This is my third year at OBM where I serve as US History teacher and assistant football coach. 

I have a huge passion for education and sports which makes teaching and coaching a perfect profession for me.  At Westminster, I majored in Physical Education with minors in Exercise Science, Coaching, and Personal Training--all while playing on the varsity football and baseball teams.
