I first started my career working in industry. I worked in Accounting for 9 years. I moved into education after moving to the small town of Madison, Georgia in 2001.
Living in Madison I knew that I would more than likely have to commute quite a distance to work. With two small children at the time I was not willing to spend most of my time working and commuting. I had been contemplating moving into education for years. The move to Madison confirmed for me that it was time to do so.
I began working on my masters in business education at the University of Georgia in 2002 and officially began my teaching career in the 2003-2004 school year.
This is my first year at OCHS. I teach the Marketing Career Pathways and serve as DECA advisor.
I thoroughly enjoying my career in education. I enjoy working in the CTAE department because it gives me the opportunity to apply my real-world knowledge and experiences with my students.
I continue my professional development through attending conferences and other workshops.
