I graduated Cum Laude for Troy State University in 1985 with a BA in English/French Education. I graduated with honors in 2018 with an MA in Library Education Media.
Before assuming the position of librarian at Goshen High School, I taught English at the middle and high school levels for four years. Before joining the Goshen Family, I taught English and Reading at Pike Liberal Arts School in Troy for 8 years. Before that I worked in the banking industry for many years and in many different positions, including branch manager.
I have three children-Anna, Sara, and Jeffrey. Anna graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Supply Chain Management. She currently works in her field of study with B & B Beverage Management, and she is married to Dr. Douglas Hawkins, a veterinarian in Troy. Sara graduated in May 2018 from Samford University in nursing, and she is currently employed with Children's Hospital in Birmingham in the NICU.
