About Me

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Applied Science with a Business Administration emphasis from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2017 with a Master of Arts in History. Before becoming a full time teacher/Adjunct, I spent 11 years as a Registered Investment Assistant with Investment Centers of America and concurrently, for 6 years, I was the Instructor and Choreographer of Guards for the award-winning Kennedale High School Band in Kennedale, Texas.

I enjoys all areas of history, but I concentrate on Civil War history, Women’s/Gender history, and Native American history. I have recently began study in the history of Education, the history of Race Relations in the United States, and Political history.

History has always played an important role in my life – thanks to my dad. As a child, I was never far from a book written by Shelby Foote and the History Channel was the channel of choice in our household. My formative years were spent learning and absorbing anything about Civil War history. As I have gotten older, my areas of study has broadened and I found a love for Native American history, specifically, Boarding School history.

I am a dual faculty member for Weatherford College and Weatherford High School (WHS) in Weatherford, Texas. I currently teach Dual Credit United States History at WHS. While history is my first love, teaching comes in at a very close second. It’s important to me to leave students with the knowledge of our past and the understanding that we shape our future. History is repeatable and thats why we study it. In my classroom, it is less about the test and more about history – not only the historical narrative, but their own personal history and how that fits into the grand scheme of things.

In the end, I am about learning – soaking up all of the knowledge I can. That’s why I am here – to learn, to network, to get to know other women like me who make history their passion – to show the world that yes, indeed, #womenalsoknowhistory
