Assistant Principal


It is truly an honor to be working with the students, parents, and staff at Southaven Middle School this year!  My previous experience includes working as an English teacher at Horn Lake High School for eight years.  In addition, I served Horn Lake Middle School for three years as the MTSS Interventionist and the State Testing Coordinator. 


My education began at the University of Memphis where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism with a minor in Public Relations. I received a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.  Currently, I am working through a Specialist to Doctorate degree program in Educational Leadership at Belhaven University. 

My family and I currently live in Hernando. My husband of twenty-eight years, Bill is a realtor with Crye-Leike Realtors in Hernando and my daughter is a Senior at the University of Mississippi majoring in Marketing.  We have three dogs; Oxford, Aladdin, and Jazzmin. 

It is my committment to the students and parents of Southaven Middle School to do all I can do to help each student become successful and each parent to feel proud to send their student to SMS!  Please contact me if you have questions or concerns. 

I am looking forward to an awesome school year!
