BIOGRAPHY:
Hello! I am a 1993 graduate of Glencoe High School. I am married, and I have four children: 19, 15, and 10 (twins). I live in Southside, AL, with my family. My husband is a certified police officer and is the Director of Safety and Security at the Etowah County Detention Center; he is also a member of the Alabama Army National Guard and is a Military Police Instructor with the 200th MP company. My eldest is a 2015 graduate from Southside High School and is a sophomore at the University of South Alabama as a member of the Jaguar Band Color Guard. My middle child is a 10th grade honor student at Southside High School and plays the alto saxophone in The Pride of Southside Marching Band and bassoon in The Pride of Southside Symphonic Band. My twin boys are in the fourth grade and attend Southside Elementary School. We are members of Southside Baptist Church.
