I grew up in North Carolina but have lived in Arkansas since 2006. As a first generation college student, I had the opportunity to begin at a small community college similar to ASU-Beebe in Raymond, Mississippi. I had such a great experience there that I decided becoming a two-year college instructor was the right career for me. I really enjoy teaching and helping others learn. In Fall 2016, I received the Arkansas Community Colleges Outstanding Faculty of the Year award for ASU-Beebe.
My husband, Gerald, and I have been married since 2005. He works in the finance department for the Arkansas State Police. We are dog parents of a miniature Schnauzer, Sophie.
I love everything Disney, and if you have the opportunity to stop by my office, you will see lots of Disney memorabilia and will likely hear Disney songs in the background. My favorite Disney movies are Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and the Lion King. My favorite Disney quote is “All you need is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust!” I also love to travel. My favorite vacations are trips to Disney World and going on cruises. I have been to Jamaica twice, Honduras, Belize, and to various ports in Mexico. My favorite cruise port so far has been Costa Maya in Mexico. I love beach days! When I am not traveling, I enjoy spending time with my family and binge watching Netflix.
