I was born and reared right here in Dallas. I was a paralegal for 16 years prior to teaching. I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2004 with a Master of Arts in the Humanities – Major in Studies in Literature. This is my 12th year teaching (11 @ Lovejoy; 12 @ University of Phoenix). My husband, Guy, and I have been married for 30 years. We have three boys (Trey, Max, and Will) who are a professional bass player for Royal Caribbean, senior at UT, and sophomore at UT, respectively. We live on Rosedale Farm, a 52-acre hay farm in Hunt County.
