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, Kindergarten and First Grade. I have previously taught within the Rutherford County School system as well as Murfreesboro City Schools and First Methodist Pre-School. I have been married to my husband Chris for 26 years and we have two children Sydney & Callie and a precious Labradoodle we rescued named Luke. I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors.
