I am in my 8th year teaching and my fourth as a member of the MJH Warrior Team as a band director. As a 2009 graduate of Manvel High School, I am very excited to be back home teaching band with the very teachers who inspired my musical career!
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Sam Houston State University (Eat 'Em Up Kats!!) with a Bachelors of Music Education in May 2013 where I studied clarinet with Dr. Patricia Card. During my time at SHSU, I was awarded the Texas Music Educators Association Student Teaching Scholarship. I was a proud member and visual tech for the Bearkat Marching Band, an original member of the Treble Makers Clarinet Quartet, and played bass clarinet in the Symphonic Band under the direction of Dr. Brian Gibbs.
My professional affiliations include the Texas Music Educators Association, Texas Bandmasters Association, International Clarinet Association, Tau Beta Sigma (Alumni- Alpha Omicron Chapter), and the Golden Key International Society.
I currently reside in Iowa Colony, Texas with my husband Andrew, daughter Madelyn, and Basset Hound Sandy
