I was born and raised in Jackson, TN and I am the fifth out of six children. Immediately after graduating high school I attended the local community college and trained to become a paramedic. I worked as a paramedic for three years (2004-2007) before moving to Idaho and completing my bachelor's degree in elementary education at Brigham Young University Idaho. Upon completing my degree I moved back to Jackson, TN and taught first and second grade at Isaac Lane Elementary (2011-2014). Upon moving to Memphis, I taught kindergarten (2014-2016), second grade (2017-2018) and fifth-grade math (2018-2019) at White Station Elementary. I am excited to join the Bon Lin Middle family and teach sixth-grade math this school year. Go Lynx!
