I attended Clark Atlanta University and received a B.A. in Business Administration/Marketing and worked in the field of business for several years. My real passion was to work with young people in the field of education thus, I returned to school to obtain Teacher's Certification in Business Education and Master's Degrees in Education (Counseling and Educational Administration) all at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I have worked as a teacher and counselor in St. Louis Public Schools for over 19 years, and thoroughly enjoy working with students and their parents. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, walking outdoors, and spending time with my family including my husband and children.
