Born and raised in Jackson, MS. I studied at both Miss State and the University of Southern Miss where I received my bachelor's degree in Interior Design and a minor in Art. For a few years after college I owned Paint It My Way in Jackson where I realized my true calling was teaching art, not just providing a great venue for it. I went back to school at Belhaven, and received my Master's in Teaching. Since then I have held various positions in the Art Education field and I am very excited to be at Madison Middle teaching Design I, Photography, and Advanced Art.
