BIOGRAPHY:
Hello! I am a 1993 graduate of Glencoe High School. I am married, and I have four children: 23, 19, and 13 (twins). I live in Southside, AL, with my family. My husband is a member of the Alabama Army National Guard and is a Military Police Instructor with the 200th MP company, Recertification and Training at Fort McClellan, AL. My eldest is a 2015 graduate of Southside High School; she graduated from The University of South Alabama in 2019 and has a degree in therapeutic recreation.  She is now enrolled in the Master's Program at USA. My middle child is a 2019 graduate of Southside High School and is a freshman at Troy University; she is a member of the alto saxophones in The Sound of the South Marching Band. My twin boys, Conner and Jefferson, are in the eighth grade and attend Rainbow Middle School.  Jefferson plays the tuba in advanced band and an eighth grade marcher with The Pride of Southside, and he is a member of the Southside High School Bowling Team.  Conner is autistic, has a phenomenal memory, and wants to be a movie producer when he grows up.
