    I am grateful to be serving this community through teaching music at MAUE. This is my 8th year at MAUE.
    A 1986 graduate of Mississippi State University and Mississippi College, I appreciate the opportunity to teach at MAUE.
    I studied Dance at Southeastern Louisiana University and played for the SLU Tennis Team. I grew up in
    Brookhaven, MS and I am a graduate of Brookhaven High School.
    I received a Masters in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College in 2019.
    My love for music began while a member of my church youth group and youth choir. 
    I have directed over 50 musicals with children from kindergarten to 12th grade in Vicksburg, Brandon and Madison.
    While attending Belmont University in Nashville, TN, I received a Kodaly I Certification. Kodaly is a method of teaching
    in which music is taught through singing.  
    I recorded  my first CD in Nashville at The Scruggs Studio.
    I believe that ALL students should be given the opportunity to explore their musical gifts and have the
    opportunity to experience the power of music.
    It is my honor to share my passion for music with your children.
