Before Huntsville, I worked at my tribe’s school. I am a Cherokee Indian and am so very proud of my heritage. I worked at the Cherokee Immersion school where our students learn to speak our native language. While on campus the students in PK-6th grade speak, read and write in Cherokee only. We are trying to save our language by instilling the Cherokee language and traditional ways of life to Cherokee children. Hopefully, at some point, I plan on returning to my tribe and helping in their endeavors.
I am a single mother to three glorious children. My oldest son is 24 years old and graduated from Dartmouth in June of 2018. My daughter is 22 years old and is a nurse. My youngest son is 20 years old and is currently in school at Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado. My oldest two graduated high school in Oklahoma and my youngest son graduated from Har-Ber in Springdale.
I enjoy spending time with my children. I like to fish and read. I am an Oklahoma Sooner and love cheering the Sooners on! BOOMER!!!! Oh, and I love CHRISTMAS!!!!
