Work Experience

I have been married for 24 years to Rio Class ’99 alum, Mike Davis.  We have three kids, one daughter, and two sons.  We also have one adopted daughter and two exchange student daughters (from Scotland and Ukraine) who are just like our own kids.  Appalachia is our home and always will be.

I have been in the education field for 25 years.  Most of those years I have taught and coached at South Gallia HS.  It is a blessing to do what I love as my job!
