Principal's Bio


Image for Superintendent/Principal

I was blessed to join the Turkey Ford School Team and have served as Principal/Superintendent since 2004. I'm originally from Arkansas and received my BSE from Southern Arkansas University and my Master's in Education Administration from Missouri State University. Previously, I taught middle school science and coached girls volleyball and basketball. Other employment experience included serving as an officer in the U.S. Army for six years, working as a deputy sheriff in a county jail in Idaho for six months, fast food, waitress, auto parts store clerk, pipeline welder's helper and secretary. I am a Christian with strong work ethic. I am happily married to my husband, Kelly, who is a professor at Missouri Southern State University and we have two children, Ashley (married to Austin) and Brayden. I believe every child deserves the opportunity for a quality education, regardless of socioeconomic background. I take pride in the Turkey Ford School Campus and the faculty/staff are like family who problem-solve and continually strive to improve. Together, we create a positive learning environment where students experience success.
