Her hobbies include working with children, storytelling, bird watching, singing, gardening, networking rescue dogs while volunteering with person’s in need. She enjoys being a docent at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, volunteering at Children's Church and a local women's shelter, and facilitating teacher in-service training with MRESA. Her greatest joy comes from serving our Heavenly Father!


“I love the world that God has provided us. I feel that it is our duty to bring His world closer to His children. We all need to ask ourselves if we are doing our part in molding and leading His children with the Godly principles He has established. As a dyslexic learner myself, I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with each student as we face our futures together. Hopefully, I can bring hope for our students as I struggled and still struggle with dyslexia. When we have Jesus in our heart, nothing is impossible!”
