I graduated high school from the University School of Jackson in 2006. After high school I pursued my college career at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where I attended school for 4 years. I decided to transfer to the University of Tennessee at Martin to be closer to family. I received my diploma in May of 2012 with a Special Education degree.


I have been teaching at Maury City Elementary every since I graduated college. I absoutely love what I do and love my work family.


I was born and raised in Jackson, Tennessee. I have two loving parents, Molly, my mother, is a retired school psychologist for the Jackson Madison County School System, Mike, my father, is a contractor in Jackson and owns MG Construction. I have two older sisters Anna and Lauren. Anna works in the OR at Jackson General Hospital and Lauren is a respiratory therapist in Jackson. I have one nephew, Chase, and a niece, Ava Jane. I married Logan Foust from Bells, Tennessee on July 19, 2014 and we currently reside in Alamo, TN. We are expecting our first child, a little girl, on August 21st. We are very excited. I love being on the water, my sweet puppy dogs Shug and Tobey, spending time with friends and family, and teaching.
