Born and raised in Cumberland County. I am married and have three great children. I reside in the Marrowbone community where I have lived most of my life. I graduated high school in May 1985 and joined the military in July 1985. While in the military I have had the chance to travel around the world to many different places one being Operation Desert Storm 1990-1991. I got a degree in teaching from Western Kentucky and started teaching school as a Third grade teacher at CCES in August 1998. In 2007 I started teaching PE at the Elementary school. Retired from the military as a First Sergeant on 1 June 2017 with 32 years in service. Now I am teaching the AEP program at the high school where I plan to retire in June 2021.
