My undergrad years were spent at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville where I earned a B.A. in English and Psychology. Soon after, I completed an M.A.T. in curriculum and instruction at The University of Memphis. In addition to these degrees, I have completed more graduate work at The University of Maryland and The University of Colorado, Denver.
