I am a 1997 Americus High School graduate, and I began my teaching and coaching career in 2001.   Over my twenty-plus years in education I have worn many hats such as Head Football Coach, Department Chair, Team Leader, Athletic Coordinator, Assistant Athletic Director, and Athletic Director.  I had the pleasure of coming to McEachern in 2022 as an Assistant Principal to embark on a new journey in my career.  My wife April and I have been married for thirteen years and together we have three children and a Chocolate Labrador.   Go Dawgs! Go Indians!

I began my career in education in the year 2000. After transitioning from the Biotech field, I found my passion in teaching. Since then, I have worked my way up to leadership and supervised several different departments and systems. I know what it takes to get students to learn and move in the direction of success. I often model strategies so that teachers can see and understand the importance of providing standards-based instruction. My focus has always been on how best to serve the student in the classroom. I believe that all children can learn if given the proper support and resources. As a native of Atlanta Georgia and a current resident of Powder Springs, and the proud wife, and mother of two sons that are former graduates of McEachern, I thrive to guide McEachern to academic excellence.
