Bio

This will be my tenth year of teaching English.  I feel so lucky to be able to teach at Spain Park!

Originally from Mobile, AL, I came to the Birmingham area to attend Birmingham-Southern College. After graduating from Birmingham-Southern with a degree in English, I decided to get my Master's in Secondary Education from UAB.

To say that I'm an eclectic person is an understatement. I always knew I would end up teaching, but somewhere along the way I've managed to help crew a 2-masted schooner in the Caribbean, spend a summer studying Shakespeare and architecture at St. John's College in Oxford, England, work in the Accounting Dept. at a local law firm, guide backpacking through Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, serve as a guide/instructor for an outdoor company called Treeline Expeditions, and teach yoga at a local studio. My husband and I don't sit still very well!

My favorite authors include Sylvia Plath, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kurt Vonnegut, and Neil Gaiman. 

As you get to know me you will see that I am always willing to help you - JUST ASK! 

Fun facts:

I'm a certified yoga teacher 

I love to hike, canoe, and camp

My honeymoon was spent walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain for 5 weeks (500 mile pilgrimage) 

My husband is also an English teacher (not at Spain Park)

I've been 6 feet tall since I was 12 years old.

I try to live by Gandhi's words: Be the change you wish to see in the world.
