I began pursuing my bachelor's degree at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. After three years at CofC, I married my husband, Taylor, and we moved to Jacksonvile. Here, I attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where I completed my degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Fine Arts.

Hello and welcome to my classroom! I have been teaching first grade at HCES since January 2016. My husband and I have lived in Jacksonville for a little over two years now and we enjoy living close to the water. We have a cat named Jax and a new puppy named Cooper. They are our only children right now! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially on (or in) the water! I am a certified scuba diver and I love to explore underwater. I also enjoy sports, fitness, cooking, and watching my favorite TV shows at home :)
