I began my education here in Hamblen County. I attended Manley Elementary, West View Middle, and West High School.  I attended Walters State and ETSU where I received a degree in Medical Laboratory Technology. I worked in a medical laboratory setting until 2005 when I began teaching here at West High.


I have 20 years experince in the medical laboratory profession and 10 years teaching experience.


I have been married for 30 years to Gary and have two children.  Our daughter, Hannah is married and is a registered nurse, and our son, Aaron, works for the state of North Carolina in the field of fisheries. We also have an amazing granddaughter that is 3 years old. We are members of Manley Baptist Church.  One of my favorite things to do with my family is camping. The type of camping I enjoy does involve electricity and showers! I also enjoy listening to Contemporary Christian music and attending concerts. I also love the beach!
