Truly understand and live your subject from the core.”

Teaching has been something that I have always wanted to do. Marrying education with experience is a wonderful relationship. Education sets the foundation for so many opportunities. Excited to be on the other side of the classroom experience and be able to listen, learn, and inform those that want to make funeral service their career. As a former Forensic Investigator in Florida, I have been able to experience the death industry full circle. Applying my knowledge from the Forensic/Behavior side along with Mortuary Science has given me a unique outlook and experience that I am excited to share with you. Ms. Mirabal teaches Funeral Service Administration, Funeral Service Management, and Funeral Service Merchandising. 

I currently live in Mobile, Alabama with my husband as he finishes his graduate degree in Physician Assistant (PA) studies. We welcomed our first child this past September and we are so excited for this new adventure.

I am from the beautiful state of Kentucky. I played basketball for the University of Louisville and still love to play in my free time. Christmas is my most favorite time of year and yes, I am the one that listens to Christmas music in July. I love spending time with family and friends and enjoying every moment of this life I have been blessed with.
