Bio

I have 20 years of teaching experience in elementary, middle school, coaching girls athletics and higher education. I grew up in Wichita Falls, TX and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Midwestern State University. I received both my Masters in Sport Management and my PhD in Adult and Community Education from Texas State University- San Marcos. 


Currently, I teach at Midwestern State University in the Department of Kinesiology. I teach courses in Assessment of Physical Education, Methods of Physical Education, Motor Skill Acquisition and Analysis, and Research Methods. My research interests are physical activity/movement in the classroom, technology in physical education, and assessment in physical education. 


I live in Wichita Falls, TX with my husband Max, stepdaughter Landry, dog Lily, and cat BB. I enjoy camping, playing sports and games, being on the water, and traveling.
