I am so excited to be assistant principal of Olive Branch Elementary School. I am thrilled to continue working with our amazing staff, students, and parents. 

I grew up in Collierville, Tennessee, but made the move to Mississippi in 1998. I have been married to my husband, Tracy, for 21 years, and we have 14-year-old twin girls, Mary Beth and Neely. I earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, from Ole Miss, and my master’s in educational leadership, from Arkansas State University. I taught at the primary level for ten years within our school district. 


Education is my passion! I am so happy to be a part of these important foundational years! I look forward to seeing all of our students grow as readers, writers, and mathematicians! Go Quistors!
