I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa. I am a child of God and I thank God that I was raised in a Christian home where I knew at an early age that I was lost and needed to be forgiven of my sins. I attended West End Christian School and received a BS degree in Child Development from the University of Alabama. I am beginning my 7th year at ACA. I directed the pre-school for three years and now am starting my fourth year in K-4. I am married to Shad who is originally from Tyler, Texas. We have been married 16 years and have three children, Anna Katherine, Brayden and Mary Blake, who all attend ACA. We attend First Baptist Church. I enjoy reading, smocking, riding our horses, a little gardening and anything we do as a family. I am excited and thankful to be part of the ACA family.
