My desire to learn started as a student at King where I pursued studies in music and psychology. I attended East Tennessee State University and obtained an MA in Counseling with an interest in helping those with low self-esteem and disordered eating. I co-founded a small organization, SHINE, to raise awareness for eating disorders. I worked for a few years counseling children and youth and decided I wanted to transition to teaching.
At King, I teach mainly developmental psychology courses. I am fascinated by the rate at which infants and children learn and grow and I thoroughly enjoy educating others about this subject.
In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, reading, sitting in the sun, and spending time with my husband Johnny and my daughter Stella Rosemary.
