I grew up in the Panhandle of Oklahoma. I attended Balko Public School k-12. I received my BS in Communication Sciences Disorders from the University of Oklahoma. I received my MS in Audiology from the University of Oklahoma. I received my Doctorate in Audiology from A.T. Still University of Health Sciences. Previous to working in a public school setting, I have worked for a Non- Profit Speech-and-Hearing Center, ENT clinic, and Private Practice hearing aid dispenser.
I am married with two children. My husband and I both grew up in Balko, Oklahoma. Michael is a high school teacher for the Turpin, OK School District.
