    A little about me:

    I have always had the privilege of calling East Tennessee home.  My passion for education started at the age of 3.  My mother instilled in me a desire to read at an early age and it has fueled a lifelong desire to learn ever since.  Most recently I served in a post secondary role at a local community college for 10 years.  While still working at the college, I decided to begin learning to serve K-12 students and went back to college to be a school counselor.  I love the opportunity i have in this role to invest in each of the student's lives as I was so fortunate to have adults that invested in mine throughout my academic journey.
