Our small town is a wonderful place to live and I am proud to be lifelong resident of Washington, OK. I grew up on Dowdle Farm located just a few miles west of town. I attended Washington Public Schools starting in Kindergarten and graduating in 1999. I then married my husband, Richard, and we have made our home in Washington. Our three girls, Aubrie, Reese, and Daphne attend Washington schools as well. The girls are involved in many various activities in our community. We are also active members of Union Hill Baptist Church. Currently, I am a stay at home mom and own a long-arm quilting business. I completed an associate degree in Early Childhood Development and operated an in-home day care while my girls were small. I love our small town and am grateful to be able to represent the Washington community as a school board member.
