About Me

HMS cheer is a big part of my after school hours. I sponsor this very talented group of athletes!
Apart from school activities, I love hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking and spending time outdoors and especially on Pickwick lake. In Germantown, you may see me out riding my bike or walking the neighborhoods, parks and Green Line : )
I’ve taught physical education classes at the University of Memphis, Germantown Elementary and Houston Middle. I’ve always loved teaching students to enjoy exercise.
My husband and I have three grown children and one baby granddaughter! We are blessed!
