I graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Five years later, I obtained my M.Ed. In  Curriculum and Instruction (Elementary Education) from The University of Massachusetts/Lowell in Lowell, Massachusetts.


Since 2010, I have been teaching for Hamilton County Department of Education, all in 4th grade. During my first year with HCDE, I split time between Red Bank Elementary and Clifton Hills Elementary. I have been teaching at RBES full time for the past three years. Prior to my time with HCDE, I worked mainly with at-risk children and their families...including teaching for two years in behavior management classrooms and three plus years with an outdoor experiential education program.


I was born, raised, and educated in Chattanooga, Elementary through High School...moved away for college. I finally returned to the Scenic City in 2010. I have several family members who still reside here. I have a 14 year old son who is in eighth grade. I enjoy staying active...including running, tennis, and basketball.
