As a young girl from Millry, AL, I began Auburn in 1978 hoping to become a chemical engineer. After two years, I changed my major to Pharmacy and never looked back.
The pharmacy profession lead my to the love of my life, Wayne, who was also a pharmacist. We married in 1983 and began our life. Our union produced two more Auburn graduates, Leslie ’11 and Daniel ’15. My husband passed away in 2002. After this life changing event, I became a stay-at-home mom until Leslie could drive.
I then entered a political world. I was elected to the local school board in 2006 and in 2009 I was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives where I remain today. I serve on the Healthcare committee, the General Fund committee and the Rules committee. I am a member on the Governor’s Health improvement Task Force, the Opioid Abuse and Addiction Task Force, the Energy Council and the Unmanned Vehicle study Commission.
I am a life member of the Auburn Alumni Association, a member of the Pharmacy Alumni Association, the 1856 Society, and Tigers Unlimited. I have served as president of the Clarke-Washington Alumni Association. I am involved in the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association, the National Wild Turkey Federation and the NRA. I am a member of the Chatom Baptist Church.
Above all, I love Auburn and following Auburn sports.
