Graduate of Echols County High School.

Medical Assisting Diploma Valdosta Technical Institute.

Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education at Valdosta State University.

I have worked at Echols County School for ten years as the ESOL Director and ESOL Teacher. 


My father was in the Navy so my elementary school days were spent in places like Charleston, South Carolina, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Memphis Tennessee.  I moved to Echols County when I was in the tenth grade. 

My husband and I are both graduates of Echols County School. We have two children. Our daugther graduated from Echols in 2016 and our son is a junior at Echols County High School.  We enjoy traveling and especially going on cruises.  One of my favorite hobbies is reading.
