I am currently a business and marketing teacher at Riverdale High School. I've been married for over 17 years and have one daughter that runs XC, track, and has many other hobbies. As a graduate from MTSU for both my undergrad and Master's degree, my roots are firmly planted in Murfreesboro. I've been at Riverdale since 2012, when I made a career change from the recruiting industry to the teaching field. I love being able to share my outside working world knowledge with the students of today that will become the leaders of tomorrow! I also work for the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce during the month of June facilitating the summer internship program for rising seniors across the county. I am also a DECA adviser www.deca.org
