I attended the University of Southern Mississippi, where I received my Bachelors of Science with a major emphasis in marine biology. However, like many people, I opted to work in a completely different field. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Daniel, for 10 years. After 15 years as a retail manager, we decided that I would retire when our son started 4K here at SFA last year. I loved the community, families, and teachers so much that I began substitute teaching. And, thus, substituting led me to teaching in the part time program this year. I grew up at St. Francis of Assisi Church, and am so excited that I now get to help the children of this wonderful school grow in both spirit and knowledge. When I'm not teaching, I like to spend my free time reading, quilting with my mother, and playing with my son.
