I was born in Athens, GA but moved to Alabama when I was in grade school. I graduated from Oneonta High School and attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I graduated with a degree in Biology, minoring in Chemistry.
I spent 6 years as the manager of a local vitamin store when I decided I wanted to become a teacher. I attended graduate school at the University of Montevallo where I recieved my Master's degree in Secondary Education.
I spent the first five years of my career teaching Pre-AP Chemistry and AP Chemistry at McAdory High School. I look forward to my fifth year at Thompson High School. Warriors #1!
