Prior to becoming an administrator, I was an Agriscience Teacher and FFA Advisor in several northwest Alabama schools including Lexington from 1998 – 2009. While in those programs, I taught courses including Building Construction, Agricultural Mechanics, Welding, Horticulture, Forestry, Animal Science, Poultry Science, Floriculture, and Landscape Design. During that time, our FFA Career Development Events Teams won 10 state championships in Building Construction, Agricultural Mechanics, Nursery Landscape, and Floriculture. In 1 year as a Carpentry & Cabinetmaking teacher, 2 of my students won the state SkillsUSA events in both Carpentry and Cabinetmaking. Two of my students won collegiate level SkillsUSA state titles.

I earned degrees and certifications which include a Ph.D. in Career & Technical Education from Auburn University, an Educational Administration Certification from The University of North Alabama, an A.A. Certification and Masters in Agribusiness Education from Alabama A & M University, a B.S. in Agribusiness Education, from Auburn University.
