I can't explain how excited I am to be a part of the Hillcrest family! I have always had a love of children and I've had many influential teachers in my learning career to motivate me to become a teacher. 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.
I was born in Kentucky and moved to Dothan before starting second grade. I moved to Jackson, MS after graduating high school where I worked for many years in the veterinary field. I always knew that I wanted to become a teacher and was blessed when given the opportunity to go to college. I graduated from Belhaven University in 2010 and began my teaching career. After teaching for a year in Mississippi, I decided to come home to Dothan. My husband and I were married in 2013. We were thrilled to welcome a precious son, Cooper, to our family in June 2016. We also have a white lab, Maverick, who is our four-legged baby. I love spending time with my family, shopping, and spending time at the lake or the beach. I also LOVE Auburn football! WAR EAGLE!
