With over 15 years of experience in the Meridian Public School District, McQuarley has served in various capacities including assistant teacher and librarian, teacher, interventionist, lead teacher, and assistant director of the Ross Collins Career and Technical Center.

A graduate of Meridian High School, McQuarley earned a Masters of Education degree in Educational Leadership from the University of West Alabama and a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Mississippi State University. She is currently pursuing an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from UWA.

“I am excited about this opportunity,” said McQuarley. “I am passionate about education and the future of our children, and I am ready to work with them daily to ensure their success.”

McQuarley is the daughter of David and Joyce Malone. She and her husband, Willie, are the proud parents of Vanessa and Marcus and grandparents to Caitlyn Williams. McQuarley is an active member of El Bethel Missionary Baptist Church where she serves as Youth Director.
