I am a native of Madison County and graduated from New Hope High School.  I attend Church of the Highlands and I am a huge Auburn fan!  I have always enjoyed physical activity and sports of many kinds and played volleyball, basketball and softball at New Hope.  I am very competitive and have a huge drive to excel.  I love teaching and coaching.  Helping my students and players develop a strong work ethic and a love for lifetime fitness is important to me.  It is very satisfying to watch their growth and success as a person.

I am a graduate of Alabama A&M University and hold a Bachelor of Science and Master of Education in Physical Education.

I have three children and son and law that graduated from Buckhorn High School: Ashley Turley, Shane Turley, Zac Clemons and Caleb Clemons.  I also have two GRAND kids: Parker Turley (7) and Brynlee Turley (3).  They call me BIG MAMA!

I have been teaching Physical Education since 2002 (Sacred Heart, Central School, Madison County, Buckhorn).  I was the Assistant and JV Volleyball Coach at Buckhorn from 1999-2001 under Coach Ace Massey.  I had the opportunity to join the Buckhorn Family last year and I love being a BUCK!
