I received my Masters degree in History from Old Dominion University in 2000. I completed my teaching certification through the State University of West Georgia in 2003. I am also National Board Certified.


This is my 13th year of alternative education.


Born in 1966, I grew up on Sand Mountain in Dade County. I graduated from high school in 1984 at what was then Northwest Georgia High School (Dade County High). I joined the Navy and became a nuclear reactor operator onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, serving during the Persian Gulf War. After completing my enlistment, I enrolled at Old Dominion University and completed my Masters Degree there in 2000. I then moved back to our area and began teaching at the Catoosa Crossroads Academy in 2001. I have been here ever since, staying on as our school changed its format and name to the Catoosa Performance Learning Center in 2004.


I am currently running for the office of State Representative, District 1 (Dade/Walker Counties).
