Subjects Taught

I graduated from high school in Medford, Oregon with honors.  Then I attended Oregon State University on an academic scholarship and majored in Mechanical engineering.  After 15 years experience in engineering, I returned to college at Middle Tennessee State University with a major in Mathematics and Secondary Education. 

I taught for 6 years at Franklin County High School in Winchester Tennessee before coming to Rhea County High School in 2007.


I have been married to the same husband since 1974.  Peter is a construction engineer with Aecom Technology and has been a contractor at Watts Bar for both unit 1 and unit 2. 

We have two married daughters.  Stephanie graduated from Tennessee Tech University with an elementary education degree and a Masters in Special Education from Lee University.  Erika graduated from the University of Tennessee with a double major in computer science and mathematics. 

We have 3 horses, 1 dog and a constantly changing number of cats on our 16 acre farm.
