I have a B.S. in Secondary Education with a concentration US and World History from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Additionally, my education includes completed course work and certifications to teach 7-12 World Geography as well as PreK-12 ESL.


I have been at OKMS since 2013. My additional teaching experience includes a semester at CSAS and a semester split between Washington Alternative School teaching middle grades social studies and Ooltewah High School teaching US History. After graduating from UTC, I was hired to work at Orchard Knob Middle School and became an official Yellow Jacket!


I grew up in East Tennessee. I graduated from Jefferson County High School in 2008 and UTC in 2013. My hobbies include reading, historical research, playing video games, and spending time with family and friends. My favorite sports are soccer, football (professional and collegiate).
