I have almost 20 years of public education/administration experience in Tennessee Public School, 5 years’ private school administration experience, and I worked 6 years as a non-profit/private school consultant where I was blessed to be able to assist with 2 private Christian school start-ups.

My strengths lie in the areas of logistics, school operations, organization, and program implementation. I am a member of the American Classical League and the International Schools Consortium.

I have organized, planned, and lead multiple statewide and national Latin competitions in the states and am a double state championship coach.

I want to learn as much as possible about international schools and implement that knowledge here at AIS.
