I was born in Hot Springs and have lived all of my life in Hot Spring County. My parents are both educators so the field of education has always been a part of my life. I am the oldest of three children and grew up a "country girl". I graduated from Malvern High School in 1990 and from HSU in 1993. I began my teaching career at Malvern in 1993 and came to Magnet Cove in 2004. I received my Master's Degree as a K-12 Reading Specialist in 1996 and my K-12 Gifted and Talented Certification in 2009. I love being a Panther and knowing what PPRD means!
I married my high school sweetheart, Kevin, in 1993. He helps run the family farm and bulk feed business. We have three GREAT children: Isaac, a football and baseball coach/History teacher at Spring Hill in Hope, Mariah, who is currently working as a CNA while attending school to become an EMT/Paramedic, and Rose a 10th grader who enjoys being the only child at home and taking care of her Boston Terrier Dwight. We love to travel the USA visiting state and national parks every chance we get, as well as camping and spending time with our extended family. One of my latest passions is Cruising! We are also members of Meadow View Missionary Baptist Church. In my spare time I manage our vacation rental condo in beautiful Branson, Missouri.
