Biography: My husband, Daniel, and I have an autistic son (Landon) who graduated from Alexandria High School in 2021. We are active members of First Baptist Church of Saks, where                                            I sing in the choir and play in the orchestra. I enjoy hiking, biking, and spending time outdoors. I especially enjoy observing and studying wildlife, gardening, music composition,                                      cooking, reading, and creating unique things. I used to volunteer at the Alabama Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Oak Mt. State Park, where I learned to treat and take care of injured                                and orphaned wildlife. I would like to (someday) become a state certified rehabilitator. When I entered college, I was a declared music major. I was a member of the Marching Southerners,                      Marching Ballerinas, and Show Choir at Jacksonville State University After studying music for 2 years, I changed my major to biology. My plan was to attend Auburn University and complete                      a Master's Degree in Wildlife Biology, but that changed when I realized I was equally passionate about teaching while working at the Anniston Museum of Natural History.
