I started my college career at Southern Union State Community College on the Opelika campus. After two years I transferred to Auburn University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I earned my master's degree in Elementary Education at Troy State University-Phenix City and my school librarian certification at Auburn University.
I taught fourth grade in Phenix City, Alabama for five and a half years. I left my job there to be the school librarian at W.O. Lance Elementary. I worked there for a year and a half, then moved to Lanett Junior High to be the librarian. Several years ago, we combined the junior high library with the high school library and I became the librarian for both schools. This is my third year serving as the Lanala yearbook advisor.
My mom and my stepfather live in Valley. My mom recently retired from Auburn University. War Eagle! I have one sister who is six years younger than me. She is also a librarian! She lives in St. Petersburg, Florida with her dog, Henry. She is only a few minutes from the beach. I have a stepsister who is older than me and she lives in Orange Beach, Alabama, which is also only a few minutes from the beach. I have a younger stepbrother who lives nearby and has two children.
I have a dog, Jax. He is a tan lab/shepherd mix. He loves to play and give hugs!
