I graduated from Avondale College, NSW, Australia in 2004 with my Bachelor's of Teaching degree. I then graduated from UTC, TN in 2011 with my Masters of Education in Special Education with an emphasis on Mild to Moderate Disabilities.

In 2012, I moved with the Transition Program to Hixson Elementary. In 2015, I began working as an Exceptional Education Direct Service teacher and work with Hixson students full time!
