Welcome to Health Science Technology! I am so excited to get this year started!
This is my third year teaching Health Science Technology at THS and I can't wait to see what this year has in store. I teach Medical Terminology, Health Science Theory/Clinicals, and Pharmacy Technician Practicum. I am also an adviser for the THS HOSA Club for Future Health Professionals.
I am a nationally board certified and licensed Athletic Trainer. I am also a certified Pharmacy Technician. I received my Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training at the University of Texas and my Master of Sports and Fitness Administration at the University of Houston. I also worked as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer while at the University of Houston with the Women's Swimming and Diving team. I enjoyed athletic training at UH, but I have always had a strong desire to teach students about the fascinating aspects of the medical field. Making the switch to teaching has been the best change and I couldn't be happier teaching at Tomball High School. My hope is that all my students gain the knowledge and skills that will make them successful in the healthcare field and in life.
I have a sweet 3 year old son, Parker, and a loving husband, Casey. We also rescued an affectionate cat that we named Boo. My spare time is spent mostly with my family, going to the park, pool, or on a bike ride. I am a certified SCUBA diver and I hope to see all the beautiful reefs of the world some day, but I've only made it to Cancun so far.
Feel free to contact me via email or campus phone with any comments, questions or concerns. I look forward to a great year at THS. Go Coogs!
