I have been working at ECP Schools since 2000. I currently contract as the Speech-Language Pathologist serving students in Pre-K-12th grade who display communication disorders. In addition, I serve as the Director of Special Education.
I also proudly coached the HS Academic Teams for over 12 years.
Before working at ECP, I worked cooperatively in the districts of Maysville, Wayne and Byars from 1990-1999.
I have been married to Ken Herrod since 1986. We have 3 wonderful children...Colton, Becca and Molly. Colton and Becca graduated from ECP in 2010 and 2013 respectively. Molly graduated from Elmore City-Pernell in 2016. Colton obtained a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Oklahoma majoring in MIS.

I love to spend time with my family. I enjoy eating out and some of my favorite restaurants are Tio’s, Mahogany Steakhouse and Baker’s Pizza. My girls and I love to sing together. I currently perform at the Pauls Valley Opry each month. I also enjoy reading and watching Thunder Basketball.
