My passion in life is to be one of the greatest nurses you will ever meet. I am a wife and a mom of three beautiful girls. I have overcome many obstacles that most would have given up on. I am currently in school to become a nurse. I am striving to become one of the best nurses ever and will except no less. As I finish with school, I am seeking employment in a hospital atmosphere, preferably working in labor and delivery.

Applebee's Bar and Grill
I moved to Laurel in January 2006, and was offered a job working at a well known chain company; Applebees. I did not know anybody from Laurel besides my husband so I quickly took the job in hopes of meeting new people. After the first week of being a waitress, I was moved to bartender. I learned to make numerous mixed drinks and met new people. I have two and a half years of experience bartending and also a mixed variety of public relations that allows me to adapt in many situations.

I am a licensed cosmetologist. I went to Southwest Community College in Summit, MS from August 2003 until I graduated in July 2004. I began working in a salon immediately after receiving my licenses. I enjoy doing hair and creating new, exciting looks for people to feel better about themselves. Making people smile helps me to smile and make it through the day knowing I helped someone to feel better about themselves.
