I grew up in New Johnsonville, Tennessee on a large working cattle farm. I attended Camden Central High School graduating in 2003. After graduation I attended The University of Tennessee at Martin where I majored in Agriculture. I obtained my teaching license in 2007. I then obtained my Masters in Education and Educational Specialist Degree from Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky. I have been the Agriculture Education Teacher and FFA advisor in Camden since 2014. I lie to hunt, fish, and play golf. I also manage the Waverly Country Club and Woodsong farms.
