Born in an Air Force family, I moved frequently around the United States and graduated from Warrenton High School, Missouri. I graduated from Maryville University with a B.S. in Biology and shortly after obtained my Masters in Secondary Education.
As a teacher, I support all learners and advocate for women of color in science and health professional related fields. I also partner with Washington University as a Saturday Scholars Program sponser to help expose students to medical school and college life in a science or math related career.
I live in West County with my husband, Caleb, and my two dogs, Pebbles and Peppers. I am very involved in cheerleading, and have been coaching for over 7 years a Varsity and competitive team outside of school. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my dogs, and coaching cheerleading. I also enjoy working out and various fitness programs and relating fitness and athleticism to the core Biology curriculum.
