    I have a secondary career in Traditional Publishing and am a multi-published author of thirteen novels in a variety of genres. I'm a native of Jefferson County and a JCHS Graduate of the Class of 1997. I believe reading, writing, and lifelong learning should be challenging and fun! All students are capable of achieving success and I enjoy helping JCHS students pursue their chosen academic and career goals. Having grown up in a family of educators, I am grateful for the opportunity to support my neighbors' children and give back to our community.
