I am excited to work with your child this year. This is my first year at McKinley High School. I have been employed with SLPS since 2014.

I graduated from Florida A&M University with a Business Administration Degree with an emphasis in Accounting. After graduating, I worked as an Auditor, Controller, Human Resource Manager for major corporations such as Philip Morris, Bank of America, Ernst & Young/Mitchell & Titus LLP, America's Public Television Stations, and Smurfit Stone Container Corporation. I earned my MBA degree from Webster University.

I hold a Secondary Business 9-12 teaching certification. I have also taught in North Carolina. I have post-secondary teaching experience as an Adjunct Business Instructor for various institutions. I enjoy working with students and hope to instil a love of learning.

I have an amazing daughter who is a sophomore student attending Washington University. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and spending time with my wonderful family and fabulous friends.
