I graduated from Locust Fork High School in 2006. After high school, I attended Samford University where I got my Bachelor of Music degree in voice performance. Samford is also where I met my husband, Ben. We dated throughout most of our college years. I took a break from school before going back for my Master's. In 2012, I began the graduate program at the University of Alabama's School of Library and Information Studies. I graduated with my MLIS in 2014. This is my fifth year as the librarian at Hewitt-Trussville High School and my fourth year as adviser of the HTHS chapter of the National Honor Society.

I'm also active in the Alabama Library Association as a member of their Childrens and School Library Division.
