I am a Huntsville native and grew up in South Huntsville, graduating from Grissom High. As a teacher's daughter with two degrees from The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!), I have long valued and enjoyed education, and believe in every student's ability to learn.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a fundraiser and volunteer coordinator for United Cerebral Palsy in Birmingham, a non-profit that serves people with disabilities. After working with teen volunteers at UCP for several years, I decided to become a teacher and share my passion for language arts. You can find me baking, traveling to new places, volunteering for A New Leash on Life, sewing, or exploring the great outdoors in my spare time with my fiance, Mitch, and my rescue dog, Gemma.
This is my second year at LMS and I have taught at Huntsville Junior High School and Buckhorn High School previously. I also serve as the Chess Club sponsor and the United Way campaign liaison for Liberty.
