I attended Murray State University where I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching at Lacy Elementary in 2010 where I taught 1st grade for 2 years. While at Lacy, in December of 2012, I finished my Masters Degree from Murray State in Reading & Writing.


Upon completion of my Masters, I took the Reading Specialist Endorsement Exam. After passing, I decided to teach Middle School. I taught 6th grade writing at County Middle for 2 years. The following year, I made another move to County High, where I taught 12th grade transition reading for seniors that had not benchmarked on the ACT. The experience of teaching elementary, middle, and high school was wonderful! However, I knew after experiencing different grade levels, intermediate in the elementary school was my true calling.

This is my 3rd year teaching at Indian Hills. I LOVE teaching 5th grade; These three years have been my favorite years so far of my career! I am looking forward to another great year at Indian Hills! 





I am from Murray, Kentucky; I lived there my entire life until I took a teaching job here in Christian County 8 years ago. I teach reading and writing. 

I met my husband, Luke, in college, and we were married October of 2012.  We have 3 large dogs that are our kids. We are members at Edgewood Baptist Church. I love to ride bikes, play golf with my husband, and cook.
