• My husband Charles and I moved to Spanish Fort from Mobile 10 years ago and we are very happy to call Spanish Fort our home. I have three children: Caden(15), William(10) and Evelyn(3).

    I graduated high school from Mary G. Montgomery where I was a 2x National Cheer Champion. I then went to college at The University of Southern Miss where I cheered and played soccer. I transferred to The University of South Alabama where I continued to cheer and graduated with a degree in Exercise Physiology. I was a staff member for Universal Cheerleading Association for a total of 6 years.

    My favorite part of coaching is watching these athletes become better teammates and ultimately, watching them become successful adults in life. This is my third year as the Spanish Fort Cheerleading coach and I have loved watching the growth in these athletes and this program. Go TOROS!
