I was raised in Sontag, Mississippi but am originally from Killeen, Texas. I am happily married to an Army retired veteran and mother of 5 beautiful children. I am an Army veteran myself, of 9 years. I am now a middle school Science teacher who holds a Bachelor in Science and psychology and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in Science Education. I love how R.I.P.P.E.D. is for all levels of fitness and helps people become more fit and healthy. I mostly love to teach, certify, and network with amazing fitness professionals. My happiness comes from watching others succeed.
