I am a Chattanooga native who grew up in Brainerd and graduated from Boyd-Buchanan School. I attended UTC, majoring in English and minoring in Religious Studies. After living in Nashville while my husband attended graduate school at MTSU, we returned to Chattanooga and settled in St. Elmo. 

When I'm not grading papers, planning lessons, etc., you can find me...

~enjoying time with my family (husband, Jerad & daughter, Molly--an 8th grader at Hixson)

~playing with our four dogs (Charlotte, Agnes, Grady, and Tucker)

~on our front porch playing music & singing with friends & family

~watching a soccer match or an SEC football game (Roll Tide!)

~cooking--I love to try new recipes

~outside--gardening, hiking, backpacking, or biking
