I was born and raised in Ruskin, Florida but have lived in Alabama for the past 10+ years. I
graduated from Shades Valley High School Finance Academy in 2014. In 2017 I married my highschool sweetheart, Chi and we have a little girl named Ila who turned 2 in December. We have lived in Leeds since getting married and we love being part of this wonderful community! 


I hold a Associate’s degree in Social Work from Jefferson State Community College, a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6) from Western Governors University, and am currently pursuing a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at Western Governors University.
