I attended Murray State University where I earned both of my college degrees. I worked during high school and college at radio stations (WEAK-AM, Eddyville; WCBL-AM & FM, Benton; WNBS-AM & WAAW-FM. Murray) as a disc jockey, reporter, ad sales rep, and pretty much anything else I was needed to be. I also worked in a sandwich shop, a steakhouse, and in retail stores, as well as for the campus newspaper (Murray State News) and television station (MSU-TV 11). I taught 3 years at Hopkinsville High School, 3 years at Crittenden County High School, then stayed home with my children for a number of years before returning to teaching at Lyon County Middle School for 2 years all as a general education teacher in English Language Arts and social studies. In 2011, I started working in the Livingston County School District within the Department of Special Education at Livingston County Middle School, and now I am serving the students at South Livingston Elementary. I am a National Board Certified Exceptional Needs Specialist, RESNA-certified Assistive Technology Professional, and Google Level 1 Certified Educator.
I live just across the river from Iuka, on a side road off KY-93 in Lyon County. My husband and I renovated (He pretty much rebuilt it while I just cheered him on.) his grandparents' home where we live. I have three children. My oldest is a software engineer working in Orlando, Florida, my middle child is in his senior year at Murray State University, and my youngest is a senior in high school. I consider it a blessing to be working with students, parents, and staff in Livingston County.
