I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I received my Bachelors of Science in Business Marketing and my Masters in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee. I received my Masters in Education from the University of West Georgia. I worked for Holiday Inn at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo as the Reservations/ Front Desk Manager. I worked in Miami, Florida as an Office Manager / Supervisor for Roadway Express. I transferred to Atlanta with Roadway and moved into the field of Human Resources. My love for students and their success lead me to field of education where I have taught business education in middle school, high school and as an adjunct professor for Chattahoochee Technical College. I am excited to be at Garrett this year!
