Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. It's always a GREAT day to be a PATRIOT!!!
I am a 1996 graduate of East Rankin Academy in Pelahatchie, MS. After two years of study at Hinds Community College, I attended Belhaven College, where I obtained my BS in Business Administration. In 2007, I received my MA in Teaching from Belhaven.
I am currently beginning my 20th year as a teacher.
I am beginning my fifth season as Head Girls Basketball Coach at Lewisburg High School. I have 20 years of experience at the collegiate, high school, and junior high levels. Prior to Lewisburg I spent the previous two seasons as the Head 9th Grade Girls and Assistant Varsity Girls Basketball Coach and Assistant Volleyball Coach at Pearl High School in Pearl, MS. During my time at Pearl, the basketball team won the 2014 District Championship, and in 2015, finished the season 21-10 with an appearance in the Class 5A Final 4. This was the school's first appearance at The Big House since 1996. Prior to my time at Pearl, I served as Assistant Women's Basketball Coach at Millsaps College (NCAA DIII). The Lady Majors went 18-10 during the 2012-2013 season, winning the Southern Athletic Association Regular Season Championship.

Over the next five years I served as the Head Boys Coach at Greenville Christian School and Head Girls Coach at Canton Academy.
I entered the public school ranks in 2006 as the Boys Basketball Coach at Byram Middle School. From there I served as Assistant Varsity Girls Basketball and Head Junior High Boys Basketball Coach at Morton High School.
