I have been in education at Dale County High School since 1994. I enjoyed teaching science for 14 years; however, I have always had an interest in psychology. In 2005, I began pursing my school counseling and psychology degree. I graduated and began as guidance counselor in 2008. I enjoy my job and love the students at Dale County High School.


I am a 1991 graduate of Carroll High School. I started Troy State University in Troy that fall and majored in Comprehensive Science education. In 1994, I began my career here at Dale County High school teaching science. I have always been very interested in nature and animals. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be a teacher. As soon as I graduated from high school, I knew exactly what I wanted to be - a science teacher. I also had a great interest in psychology and didn't want to totally change my teaching career. I then started working on my school counseling and psychology degree.  In 2008, I was hired as guidance counselor. I do miss the students and teaching in the classroom (labs and projects especially) but do love my job as counselor. I am married and have two children.
