B.S. Environmental Science- University of Tennessee @ Chattanooga

M.Ed. Secondary Education- University of Tennessee @ Chattanooga


I am a proud, lifelong Chattanoogan. This magnificent city has so much to offer and it is a perfect fit for my family. I have two beautiful, intelligent girls (both in 8th grade) who are night and day compared to one another, and a hard-working husband who I absolutely adore. Together, the four of us enjoy playing games, camping, watching movies, and traveling as much as possible. My husband and I are pretty big college football fans (Hail State!), and we spend a lot of time during the Fall enjoying that, as well.

Teaching is my second career. After graduating with my Bachelors Degree, I worked with The City of Chattanooga in the Environmental field for 7+ years. During that time I was heavily involved in Public Education and Outreach, discovering that my true passion for Science lies in sharing it with others. As such, I enrolled in the Graduate Program at UTC, completing most of the program while I was still working with The City. After graduating, I spent a great deal of time subbing in various Hamilton County Schools as well as teaching at CSAS for the last Quarter of the 2015- 2016 School Year. The 2016-2107 school year was my first at SMMHS, and I absolutely love it here!

I am very excited to begin the 2017-2018 School Year!!
