I graduated from East Central University with a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics in 1995. I have taught High School Math at Stratford for 26 years. I am married to Michael Gollihare (also known as "Fuzz") who is currently County Commissioner of Garvin County District 3. Our son, Jacob, graduated from Stratford High School in 2017 and Oklahoma State University in 2021 with a degree in Animal Science. He is starting his first year of Veterinary School at Okahoma State University and recently got engaged to Aubry Hensley.
