About Me

Educational History:

I’m a Keota Lion through and through!!  I am a Keota graduate from the class of 1981.  I received my Associates Degree from Connors State College in 1983 and went on to Northeastern State University.

After a long break from college and working in the corporate world for 20 years and running my home business for about 7 years, I returned to Northeastern State University in the Spring of 2009 and completed my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Special Education in the Fall of 2011.


I obtained my first Masters Degree in 2016 from NSU in the area of Education -Reading Specialist. I recently completed my second M. Ed. in May 2020 in the area of Psychometry at Southwestern Oklahoma State University and am currently enrolled in their program to become a Certified School Psychologist.  Expected completion date is May 2022.
