I joined Lovejoy ISD in 2021 as a 4th Grade Science Teacher at Puster Elementary. In 2022, I became the 5th and 6th Grade STEM teacher at Sloan Creek Intermediate.
I started my career in education in 2009 as a 7th Grade Science Teacher in Richardson ISD. I've also served as the 8th Grade Science Lead Teacher as well as being a member of the campus Instructional Leadership Team at Lake Highland Junior High.
I graduated from the University of Houston College of Pharmacy in 1995 and practiced pharmacy for almost 15 years before I decided to pursue my true passion, teaching. I earned my teacher certification from the University of Texas - Dallas in 2019.
I've had many kids since I started teaching, but I have three that call me 'mom' full time. Max is a marine biology major at Texas A&M, and Kylie is an Arts Administrations major at DePaul University. Logan is a student in Lovejoy ISD.
Of course, I can't forget to mention my four-legged kids, or they will get their feelings hurt. I have two rescues, Buster and Frankie.
