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.
