About the Teacher

Education

I attended Ole Miss and graduated with MS Communicative Disorders Audiology in 1998.  After working and also staying home with my young family, I went back to school.  I received my ADN from Northwest Mississippi Community College and then my BSN from Christian Brothers University in 2014.  I originally worked at Regional One Health in Labor and Delivery. 

Experience

While working as an audiologist at Methodist Central, I worked with both pediatrics and adults.  We performed hearing screenings on all the infants born in the Methodist Hospital System, which at that time included South, North, and Germantown.  We also fit hearing aids for all age groups.  In addition, we did regular vestibular and balance testing on neurologically and vestibularly impaired patients of all ages. We would also, at the doctor's request, go to the OR during ear surgery and monitor the cochlear nerve.  We stayed busy, to say the least!

Moving forward almost 15 years, I returned to school and earned my BSN from Christian Brothers University.  I started my nursing career at the Med in labor and delivery. We also had an ER within our facility which focused on pregnant and postpartum patients. As nurses within that department, we rotated among the labor hall, ER, and OR. In addition, Regional One Health is a teaching institution affiliated with UT; therefore, we saw a lot of students in all fields of health care.  Working with students, I realized that I enjoy teaching and sharing my experience with new and enthusiastic nursing and medical students.  This lead me to the decision to work with the health sciences program here in my town of Olive Branch!!

Bio

I was raised on the Coast of Mississippi in the small city of Gautier and graduated from Pascagoula High School.  I attended Ole Miss and after graduation moved to Memphis.  There, I worked at Methodist Central in Audiology as an audiologist. I married Bryant Cashion from Belmont, Mississippi, and moved to Olive Branch in 1999.  We have two children who attend Lewisburg schools. We also have two dogs; the first, Booger, a Boston Terrier, and the second, a British Lab named Cashions' Midnight Storm (aka Storm).

         

I love to play tennis, run with my Sole Sisters, travel, read, and shop.  I also like to garden and to be outside. I enjoy a good steak for dinner or Chick-fil-A for lunch, but you can't beat breakfast at Cracker Barrel or IHOP!
