I moved to Johnson City, Tennessee when my father was transferred here more than fifty years ago with a telecommunications company for whom he was working. When I was twelve, our neighbor opened a dancing school and that experience started my love of dance and physical activity. Once in high school, I continued with dance, playing team sports, and cheerleading. I graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where I cheered for three years, held leadership roles in Alpha Delta Pi Sorority as well as other organizations and graduated with academic honors. I married my high school sweetheart immediately after college, and we have been blessed with three sons and one grandson.
I taught French in Johnson City for twenty-five years and have spent the last eleven years as an elementary school administrator. My love of children and my teaching expertise should help me as I strive to make the Johnson City Chapter of Junior Cotillions a success! I look forward to learning from experienced directors and growing the Johnson City organization.
