I am abundantly blessed to be a part of the Hillcrest family! I have always had a love of children and have known I was meant to become a teacher for as long as I can remember! There have been many influential teachers in my learning career that motivated me to do my best because they could see the potential I had even when I couldn't see it. I'm excited to share my love of learning with the children I teach in hopes that I will influence them to become lifelong learners. The possibilities are endless!
I was born in Kentucky and moved to Dothan early in my learning career. After high school, I moved to Mississippi and was blessed when given the opportunity to go to college. I graduated from Belhaven University in 2010 and began my teaching career. To say that I was excited is an understatement! After teaching for a year in Mississippi, I decided to come home to Dothan. My husband and I were married in 2013 and live the "country" life in Rehobeth. We were thrilled to welcome a precious son, Cooper, to our family in June 2016. I LOVE being a boy mom and Cooper is my heart! We also have two dogs, Maverick and Lucy, who are our four-legged babies. Family is everything to me and I love spending time with them whenever I get the chance! I also love to shop and spend time at the lake or beach.
I'm looking forward to an amazing and adventurous school year not only teaching your child, but also making many memories!
