I have been in eduation for the past 15 years. I worked in Paducah Independant schools for two years, Carlisle County Schools for nine years, and am currently serving in my fourth year in the McCracken County School District. I am the Library Media Specialist at Reidland Elementary. This is my sixth year as an LMS.

I have been married to my husband John for ten years and have two children together, Hadley, a 4th grader at Lone Oak Intermediate, and Andy, a kindergartener at Hendron Lone Oak Elementary. I also have a labradoodle named Copper.

In my free time I enjoy reading memoirs, devotionals, and romance dramas. I also enjoy vacationing at the beach, volunteering at my church, and taking a nice Sunday afternoon nap! :)
