  • About Me: I have a beautiful family, been blessed with two children, and married for twenty years. I acheived my bachelor's degree in Community and Public Health, with a minor in Nutrition and was very blessed and fortunate to become employed with UT/TSU Extension in Rutherford County shortly after graduating from MTSU three years ago. I absolutely love what I do! I love working with families throughout Rutherford County, being able to see the impact of our education and touch so many lives.
