I grew up in the Bootheel of Missouri in the small town of Gideon where I graduated high school in 1986.
I started Three Rivers in 1986, but life took me on a detour. I returned to college in 2003. I graduated from Southeast Missouri State in Cape Girardeau, MO in 2007.
I returned to earn my Masters in Special Education, also earning a certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2014 and graduating in December of 2017.

I started my classroom teaching in 2009 in Bloomfield R-14.
I started teaching at Sikeston R6 the 2018-2019 school year.
I started in education as a teachers assistant at the high school level. From there I was moved from different grade levels. I have been in preschool on up through the senior level.
During some of that time, I also worked as a convenient store.
