Welcome to Health Science! I am so excited for this new year and ready for all the challenges we may face.
This is my 5th year teaching Health Science at THS and I can't wait to see what this year has in store. I teach Principles of Health Science, Health Science Theory and Clinicals/Theory, and Pharmacy Practicum. I am also an advisor for the HOSA student organization 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 at Austin and my Master of Sports and Fitness Administration at the University of Houston. Prior to THS, I 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 THS. 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 two amazing kiddos and a very loving husband. We also rescued our affectionate cat 7 years ago. My spare time is spent mostly with my family, going to the park, pool, on a bike ride, or watching Longhorn football. 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 and some local lakes 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!
