I am ecstatic to be joining the Olive Branch Middle School staff this year as the 6th Grade Assistant Principal! I look forward to continuing to learn and grow alongside some fantastic educators in the coming months.

In Educational Leadership (2018) from Arkansas State University. My responsibilities for Desoto County Schools over the past almost 18 years have included teaching second grade at Horn Lake Elementary, teaching third grade at Hernando Hills Elementary and serving as the Interventionist/STC at Horn Lake Middle School.

I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Lee for 14 fun years. We have two beautiful children, Analise (12) and Luke (7). We attend First Baptist Nesbit, are LSU Tigers fans, and enjoy camping as a family.

I’m excited to be a Quistor this year and look forward to fantastic times ahead!
