Subjects Taught
Nail Technology


I am a Licensed Nail Tech with over 15 years of experience. I also have a A.S. in Business Administration and Management, a CDA in Early Childhood Education and at one time held an Insurance License with the state of Florida. I have been teaching the Nail technology course on campus at Madison County High School through Riveroak Technical College (formerly Suwannee Hamilton Technical Center) for the last 5 years and for the last 3 years on campus at Hamilton County High School as well.


I have worked as a Nail Tech for the last 15 years in Gainesville, Florida and now in Live Oak, Florida. I continue to work in the industry weekly to keep my own skill level up in order to demonstrate the hands on portion of this class.


I was born and raised in Live Oak, Florida and a Graduate of Suwannee High School. I attended Lake City Community College and received an A.S. in Business Administration and Management. I married my husband in 1989 and we have 2 daughters, Savannah and Grace. I worked in retail management for 6 years mostly with "Things Remembered". I then moved out of retail and worked for American General Finanace as a branch Assistant manager for 3 years. After having my last child I was fortunate enough to stay home until she reached school age. I then took my course work for Nail Technology and began working as a nail tech. My family and I moved from Gainesville to Live Oak in July of 2006 and I started as a substitute in the school system and after getting my CDA and teaching VPK for a while I have landed where I think I'm meant to be, teaching what I love to do!
