I am originally from North Georgia.  I grew up and lived in the small town of Rossville, but have always considered Chattanooga home.  My family and I officially moved to Chattanooga shortly after my senior year of high school.

I attended UTC and graduated  in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, but decided that Education was my real passion, so I went back to school and earned a Masters in Early Childhood Education.  Now I get to spend my days doing what I truly love - teaching children the joy of learning.  

My husband, Tim, and I have two children, Jonathan and Marissa, and one fur baby; a cat named Tiger.   In my spare time I enjoy reading, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends.  

I have been so blessed to have found a home here at Lakeside Academy, and am looking forward to another great school year!
