I am a native of Bath County. I attended Owingsville Elementary, Bath County Middle, and Bath County High before graduating from Harrison County High in 1993. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky in 1997 with a major in History and a minor in Geography. I received my master’s degree in Social Studies Education in 1998. I taught one year in Cape Coral, FL before moving back to Bath County. In 2007 I became a National Board Certified Teacher. This is my 22nd year teaching social studies at Bath County High School.
