 My love of the outdoors guided me to my undergraduate degree in Wildlife Science.  My desire to teach others guided me to my masters degree in Secondary Biology Education.  I was blessed to have the opportunity to receive both of these degrees from Auburn University. 



My thirteen years of teaching have taken me to four different schools in three different school systems.  I began my teaching career at Opelika Middle School. There I was a bulldog for seven years.  In 2010, my family moved to Greenville, Alabama for my husband's career.  While there, I taught at Greenville Middle School and was a tiger for a year.  In 2011, I began teaching in the Lee County School System.  I started at Smiths Station Jr. High teaching 8th grade physical science. After 9 years of teaching middle school, I was ready for a change and began teaching at Smiths Station High School in 2012.  During these thirteen years, I have taught 7th grade Life Science, 8th grade Physical Science, Forensic Science and Human Anatomy/Physiology.


I have lived in the Auburn-Opelika area for 18 years.  I attended college at Auburn University and never left.  While in school, I met my husband of 18 years now.  We have three daughters that are 12, 10 and 7 years old.  We are all big fans of Auburn Tiger Football.  We love to tailgate and attend games when possible.  Along with Auburn Football, I love spending time with family and working outside in the yard.
