I have a Bachelor’s in Education from the University of South Florida.

Florida Certification:

Elementary Education (K-6)

Prekindergarten/Primary Education (Age3-Grade3)


I have been working in education for 7 years. For the past 5 years I have been working at Desoto Early Childhood Center as a paraprofessional for 2 years and then a classroom teacher for 3 years.


I was born and grew up here in Arcadia where I graduated from Desoto High School. I have been married for over 17 years with 2 amazing daughters, ages 13 and 15. While in high school, I got the opportunity to volunteer at DECC and West Elementary. This opportunity is what helped me make the decision to become a teacher.
