  • I received my BS degree at the University of Montevallo in 1997. 
  • I received my Masters degree from UAB in 2008.


I have been teaching third grade at OIS for 8 years.  Before that I taught 1st grade and preschool in a private school for 6 years.


I was married to my husband Tyler on Februrary 6, 1998.  We have three beautiful children named Hunter, Emmy, and Cade.  My life is very full and busy.  Some of my interests are singing, reading, and Alabama football!  I am involved in my church, direct the after school choir at OIS, and I lead the campus First Priority Ministry we call Saints for Christ.  I love teaching, and I am very blessed to work at Odenville Intermediate School.
