I was born in Jackson, Tennessee, but grew up in West Columbia, SC. I attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville for my undergraduate and graduate degrees in speech-language pathology. I spent 10 years total in Tennessee before then returning home to Lexington, SC. This will be my 15th year teaching speech therapy in the schools, with the last 11 being with Lexington District One. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two children.
