I recieved my Practical Nursing Degree from North Georgia Technical College in 2002 and my Bachelors Degree in Education from Piedmont College in 2013.  I will be graduating from Valdosta State University, Spring 2019, with my Master's in Workforce Education.  I then plan to pursue my specialist degree.  This year marked by tenth year in education and I am still in love with my job.  


I began my career as a nurse working at Cobb Memorial Hospital on the Med-Surg unit, I then found myself working as a Pediatric Nurse at West Lake Pediatrics for 6 years. I was hired into the Franklin School System as a Nurse-Parapro and held that position for four years. I was then given the opportunity to teach Health Science here at the high school.   


I am a 1986 graduate from Franklin County High School.  I am married to Randy and we have three sons; all of which have graduated from here.  Justin is married and lives in Orlando, florida where he leads worship at his church.  Jonathon is married and lives in Eastover, North Carolina.  He is in the Army pursuing a position in Special Operations Civial Affairs department, he is currently deployed.  Jared is attending University of North Georgia to obtain his teaching degree in Middle Grades Education in the fields of Science and Social Studies. We have one graddaughter, Summer, whom has changed our lives.  I am a Clemson Tiger fan!!!

 I am so blessed to be teaching the subject Health Science (Health Occupations). This class was my favorite  when I was in High School.  Being a teacher has always been something I dreamed of doing, even when I received my pin in Nursing school, I was given the privilege to speak and in my speech I said that I would love to teach nursing one day. Now I am able to combine teaching with nursing and it is  a dream come true. My main goal is not only to help my students to reach their goals and graduate with a plan in their future, but to inspire them to do their best and to believe in themselves no matter what circumstance they may face in life.
