I have been an AP at UGMS since February, 2008.  Before coming here, I was an AP at DMS from 2005-2008.  My leadership career began in 2001 when I worked as the Henry County System Secondary ELA Coordinator and System Testing Coordinator until 2005.  Prior to working in a leadership capacity, I was an ELA 8th grade classroom teacher at SMS from 1986- 2001.   My work at SMS solidified the appreciation I have for middle school students and the respect I have for  middle school teachers.  My profession and personal motto has always been, "All for One and One for ALL,"  and I am committed to serving in any capacity to help UGMS work toward success. 
    On a personal note, my husband James and I  have three daughters who all graduated from SHS.  Our oldest daughter is a teacher in a middle school in Clarke County, GA and mother of two.  Her twin sister (younger by 32 minutes) is a homemaker and mother of two in Houston, TX.  Our youngest daughter lives in Atlanta and manages Forsythe County Pawn Shop. 
    James and I attend Glenhaven Baptist Church where we've been members since 1995.   My hobbies are tennis, camping and crafting.  We have four pets:  Walter the chiweenie, Panda the  German Shepherd and LeLo and Cho-Cho, the cats.
