I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Sam Houston State University. I was a collegiate track athlete. I have been in the teaching field for several years. I first began my career at the elementary level teaching third grade. After a few years I made the change from classroom teacher to an elementary Physical Education teacher. I taught elementary Physical Education for eleven years. I am now currently teaching and coaching at the middle school level. I teach 6th and 7th grade Physical Education and coach girls basketball and track and field.
