I grew up in the metroplex and had the pleasure of attending private Christian schools my entire life. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Hardin-Simmons University in 2003. Soon after, I started my career at Texas Health Fort Worth, where I have worked in Oncology/Hematology for nearly 20 years. I went on to earn my Master of Public Health from Liberty University and most recently worked as a part-time school nurse at Dallas Baptist University. I pursued other passions outside of nursing, including attending the Culinary School of Fort Worth. In my spare time, I serve with my husband directing a Sunday school class of 50 people at our church, Cross City. I also serve on the medical team at church and the medical committee for the Mid-Cities Women's Clinic. My husband and I have three children - all of whom attend CCA.
