I come from a long line of musicians and teachers. My Grandmother on my mother's side was an organist for 75 years at the Cathedral in Charleston, SC. My mother was the organist/choir director at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Columbia for 30 years.
I am a product of District Five having attended Leaphart Elementary, Irmo Middle Campus R, and Irmo High School. I wanted to be a music teacher all the way back in Elementary school when I would help the music teacher choreograph dances for our shows. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in music education and elementary education in 1994 from the University of South Carolina. I received a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education in 1998 from USC as well.
I have two children, an eighth grader named Blake and an eleventh grader named Annalisa. We also have three golden retrievers named Barkley, Bentley and Oakley.
