I was born and raised in Murfreesboro, TN. As a child, I attended Murfreesboro City and Rutherford County Schools. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I have 21 years teaching experience in Pre-K and Kindergarten. I have previously taught within the Rutherford County School system as well as teaching within the Murfreesboro City Schools and at First Methodist Pre-School. I have been married to my husband Chris for 22 years and we have two children Sydney (16), Callie (12), and Maggie our 7 year old yellow lab. I enjoy spending time with my family by taking trips and enjoying the outdoors.
