I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2005 with my bachelor's degree in elementary education.


I have been happily married to my husband Payton for 13 years. We have four children, Sarah, Jackson, Hudson, and Morgan. Sarah is 18 years old and a freshman in college. Jackson is 9 years old and a fourth grader at Community Elementary. Morgan is our angel. On December 2, 2009, at exactly 5 months old, she went home to be with Jesus. Morgan was born with Noonan's Syndrome, which caused an enlarged heart. The only hope for Morgan was a heart transplant, which did not come in time. You can read her entire story at In September 2011, God blessed our family with a healthy baby boy Hudson Eli. Hudson is a kindergartener at Community Elementary.  We praise God for His many blessings on our family, and the journey He blessed us with having one of His saints in our family for five short months. I have been teaching at Community Elementary for twelve years.  Eleven of those  years, I have taught kindergarten. In my spare time, I love to travel, spend time with my family, and take part in activities within my church.
