I am married to an amazing husband, have three beautiful, little girls, and love to travel.  Moving to Tennessee is a dream come true, so our family hopes to hike, fish, boat, camp & explore this gorgeous state.  We love the

value of family and hospitality here; 

we look forward to sweet tea &

new friendships!

For five years, I have facilitated a Poetry Slam as the cumulative final for our poetry unit in my creative writing classes.  I think the best type of teaching is role modeling; so I have written a different poem, memorized it, and performed it first before every annual Slam.  Here is my Spring 2019 performance.  Enjoy!
