Subjects Taught
Social Studies 7


I recieved my Undergraduate Degree in Secondary Education from with a concentration in Economics and completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education shortly therafter both from The University of Tennessee @ Chattanooga.


Prior to becoming an educator I spent several years working in higher education. While working adult students at Miller-Motte Technical College and Chattanooga State Community College I noticed a disconnect in many student's readiness for college. I also worked as an Accounting Specialist for several years at UTC. Every student should have the tools to make an informed decision about furthering their education after high school so I decided that teaching was a better fit for my talents.


Originally from Northeast Tennessee, I am a longtime resident of Chattanooga. It is here where I completed my Undergraduate and Graduate education at UTC. I am excited to begin my teaching career at OKMS. I love children and I have a beautiful family.  In my spare time I like to cook and bake, DIY home improvement, and read. I also love to travel. I am looking to eventually fill all of the pages of my passport.
