I hold a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Asbury University, and a doctorate in education from the University of Kentucky. Before serving as a full-time faculty member at Asbury University, I taught eight years in the elementary classrooms in Nicholasville and Lexington, Kentucky. I currently live in Wilmore with my husband Ryan, our daughter Willow, and our Golden Retriever, Runner. Together, my husband and I own Reel Special Productions, a cinematography company specializing in weddings and promotional videos for nonprofits, missions, organizations, and small businesses.


  • Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Asbury University.
  • Master’s Degree in Teacher as Leader from Asbury University.
  • Doctor of Education in Instruction and Administration- Literacy Emphasis from the University of Kentucky.


I currently teach elementary education courses that focus on literacy. My research involves looking at teacher decision-making within guided reading—an instructional approach in reading. I am a member of the Literacy Research Association and chair the Student Community and Safety Committee on campus. It is a joy and passion teaching future teachers!
