After graduating from Humboldt High School in 2008, I attended Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN until I graduted in 2013.
I have a B.S. of Education with a concentration in Music Education.
I have been the band director at HJSHS for 3 years now! I moved back to the area in 2017 to give back to the band program I loved when I was in school here. With my amazing assistant director, Delaney Naffziger, we teach all 6-12 grade band classes and General Music.
Right out of college, I worked as the part-time middle school band director in Humboldt for a year and owned a business where I taught over 150 students private lessons. My husband and I then moved back to Clarksville where I taught elementary music at Moore Magnet Elementary for 3 years.
After dating throughout college, I married my wonderful husband, John, who is also a trumpet player and band director! We have been together for 12 years and have been married for 8 years. We have a sassy 4 year old daughter, Laurel, and have hosted 4 amazing exchange students, Roger, Fede, Simone, and Ida, that are like our children as well. We also have a few fur children, our dog, Loki, and 2 cats, Pearl and Archie.
I love to do crafty things like painting, building, doing home rennovations, and landscaping!
