Welcome to the Patriot family and home of the Patriot Nation! For those who are new to our Patriot family, it will be my honor to be able to serve as your child’s teacher. 

 I have been at Veterans Memorial High School since day one, and I will be going on my fourth year of teaching. I graduated from Texas A & M - San Antonio receiving a Bachelors degree of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies also, having an Associates of Science in Interdisciplinary from San Antonio College. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for twenty-one years and am a proud mother of three beautiful children. I was raised in a single parent home with many obstacles however, overcoming those trials created a strong and will-minded teacher. I enjoy cooking, eating hiking, and running. I am excited for the days where I am able to travel with my family in our owned RV. I look forward to this school year and helping your children become young adults carrying on our culture at Veterans Memorial High School!
