"The Will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you"


It is truly a blessing to be a part of the King family. I am a native of Louisiana but, I am proud to call Tennessee home. I obtained my Juris Doctorate in 2013 and Masters in 2009 with a desire to teach Criminal Justice and the Law. I worked in law enforcement for eight years. I have held the titles of Deputy Sheriff, Special Agent and Investigator however, the greatest title I will ever hold is Christian. Teaching at King University continues to be a wonderful experience for me. It is my desire to further the mission of King University while furthering the work of our Heavenly Father. I truly want to be able to educate students in the realm of Criminal Justice and help to prepare them for an ever changing field.
