I graduated from Cherokee High School, attended Northwest Shoals Community College and Jacksonville State University, and received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in education (English and psychology) from the University of North Alabama. This year is my 22nd year with the Colbert County school system.
My son Jared, a 2019 graduate of CHS,attends Northwest Shoals, and my daughter currently serves in the U.S. Air Force. My husband Dan works locally and is an assistant football coach here at CHS. When not in school, I enjoy road trips to places all over the country, shopping, reading, and doing most anything outdoors with my family.
