Hello!  Welcome to Health Care Science and HOSA, Future Healthcare Professionals!!!  I am very excited to begin my seventh year teaching at Carrollton High School.  I have been a registered nurse for thirty plus years.  My early practice areas included intensive care and cardiac rehabilitation.  I transitioned to community health nursing first as a public health nurse and then as a  school nurse for more than 15 years.  I received my diploma from Crawford Long Hospital of Emory University, my BSN from the University of West Georgia, and recently completed my MSN from Chamberlain College of Nursing.

I am mother to three wonderful children.  Katherine, my oldest is in her third year at Emory Law School. Richard is an ICU nurse at Tanner Villa Rica, currently pursuing his BSN. Richard is married to Kristen, a nurse practitioner working in the emergency department at Tanner Carrollton.  My youngest, Kimberly, is a mechanical engineer working for Google X on the self-driving car team. Kimberly recently married Brian, a computer science engineer.  

As a family, we believe strongly in the value of education, a strong work ethic, and the importance of lifelong learning.  It is my hope to share these values with the students I teach.
