I have been married to the love of my life and best friend for five years and we have two fur babies Bowie and Jolene (Australian Shepards). My husband and I reside in the Fairmount neighborhood and I am so happy to be teaching in the community I live in.

Hobbies: I love to travel and experience new things near and far! I love exploring the state of Texas and have a tradition of visiting the Hill Country every summer and Big Bend every fall. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our friends but also enjoy lounging at home to a good Netflix series. Having fun and making memories is my hobby!

Bio: I am married to my best friend. We were a military family for several years as my husband was a Navy pilot, so we have lived in many interesting places! We have five children that have graduated from college and are now married and beginning families of their own. Our three sons are in the Air Force, our oldest daughter is an RN in Oncology, and our youngest daughter is a teacher in Dallas. We have lived in Fort Worth for over 10 years now, and love it here!

My hobbies include flying with my husband, being outside, fishing, swimming, hiking, and attending Razorback football games every opportunity we have.

I am thrilled to be teaching at Lily B with such a wonderful staff, and looking forward to a great year!
