WELCOME TO MY SITE! I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
I was born and raised in central Louisiana. The oldest of five children I always yearned to be a teacher and forced my siblings to play school year round. Naturally, I graduated with a teaching degree in 1995 and earned my Master's degree in 2000. Five years later I earned my Education Specialist degree in early childhood education. After fifteen years in the classroom, I moved to the role of school counselor and I've never been happier.
While serving as school counselor at an elementary school in northeast Texas, I frequently use children's books as therapy to help my students heal, learn, and grow. Ideas for my books come from the students I work with on a daily basis. My goal, as an author, is to touch the hearts of children, one story at a time. I live on a 300 acre cattle ranch near the Red River with my husband, two daughters, three dogs, two horses, and one ill-tempered cat.
I'm married to a mustachoied pantomath.
I have two daughters and an amazing son-in-law.
My favorite vacation involves being on a cruise ship.
Number one on my bucket list is the Aurora Borealis.
I love animals and really want to own goats one day.
I've read every Nicholas Sparks book at least three times.
I think Netflix is the best idea ever and I spend way too much time binge watching cheesy sitcoms.
