About Me

It is such an honor to be the librarian at Horn Lake High School! 

I wear the Eagle pride with confident as I am committed to serving the Eagle FamiHLy! 

I was a librarian at a college for years and after moving to the top of the state of MS, I started a librarian career in K-12. 

I absolutely enjoy reading, shopping, traveling, spending time with family and friends.
