I joined Team Tulsa in August 2013. Joining Team Tulsa has provided opportunities for me to grow personally and professionally. 

I taught six years of middle school reading, english, and theatre for Catoosa Public Schools. I also taught five years of English, English Language Development, AVID, and Credit Recovery at Nathan Hale High School. I transitioned out of the classroom into the role of assistant principal at Skelly Elementary in June 2018.

I earned my Bachelors degree from Northeastern State University and my M.Ed.,  from the University of Oklahoma.

I love Attending an Edison Preparatory School football game cheering on the Screamin’ Eagles Marching Band! I am the coach of color/winter guard team at Edison.
