I am happily married to my husband, Mike. We have 3 beautiful daughters, Corinne, Melissa, and Makenzie. I have taught 3rd grade at George Watkins Elementary School in New Kent County since 1994. I went to J.R. Tucker High School where I twirled the rifle in the band! I attended VCU and received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s Degree in Teaching (Go RAMS!!). I was born in Harrisonburg, VA moved to Richmond when I was month old-so I have been here all my life. I grew up in the west end of Richmond and moved to Mechanicsville when I got married. I have been at New Song for over 15 years. By way of how I came to know Jesus, I grew up going church every Sunday with my family, attending Sunday School and eventually getting involved in the youth. As I got older, we stopped going to church and we would be the family that would go at Easter and Christmas. After I started dating Mike, I would occasionally go with him to his church. Once we had our first daughter, Corinne, we promised my mother-in-law that we would bring our children up in church. After visiting several churches in the area, we came to New Song and have been here ever since. I began volunteering Children’s Ministry and have learned so much about the Bible from teaching the children!
