Principal's Bio


Image for Principal

I grew up in Eastern KY, the daughter of a coal miner and beautician.  I attended Georgetown and University of KY before I married my husband, Jeff, and became a mother to Rachel and Aaron and moved to Tennessee.  I am a big fan of the KY Wildcats and enjoy camping, reading, and spending time with my family. I have always loved to learn. I have an A.S. from Walters State, a B.S. and M.Ed. from Carson-Newman, an Ed.S. from Lincoln Memorial, and my Ed.D. from East TN State University.  I taught at West Elementary for 14 years with 11 of those in 4th Grade. I was an Assistant Principal at West View Middle School and Lincoln Heights Middle School before becoming the Principal at West Elementary.  I am proud to be a Warrior and West Elementary will always hold a piece of my heart.
