What a joy it is to truly love what you do! My professional journey has allowed me to work with students through the K-20 span.  Prior to joining Secondary Education, I worked 13 years in College Admissions and Academic Affairs at the University of Tennessee.  During the summer, I teach a College Access graduate course at Carson-Newman University. I've traveled the county, state, region -- even to the White House to advocate for school counselors!  But it is within the walls of Bearden High School where I feel most at home - working with students, faculty, and families on a daily basis.  

On the homefront, I share my time with 3 wise men - Kurt, Nathan, and Preston
