    About the Teacher

    Hello! I am excited to start my 11th year of teaching and 5th year with the Madison County School District!  Prior to coming to Ridgeland High School, I was an assistant director at Philadelphia High School, Director of Bands at Enterprise High School, and director at Olde Towne Middle School.  I graduated high school from Alcorn Central, and I received an Associate of Arts from Northeast Mississippi Community College in 2005, a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Mississippi State University in 2007, and a Master of Music Education degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2012.  

    I am a member of the Mississippi Bandmasters Association, National Band Association, American School Band Directors Association, and I am a past president of the East Central Mississippi Band Directors Association and the Mississippi Women's Band Director Association.  

    I currently teach Marching Band, Symphonic Band, and 6th grade Blue Flutes.

    I live in Madison with my husband, Justin, who is a band director at Madison Middle School, and our amazing border collie, Annie. We are expecting our first child in January 2019.
