I have been married to my husband John for ten years and have two children together, Hadley, a 4th grader at Lone Oak Intermediate, and Andy, a kindergartener at Hendron Lone Oak Elementary. I also have a labradoodle named Copper.

In my free time I enjoy reading memoirs, devotionals, and romance dramas. I also enjoy vacationing at the beach, volunteering at my church, and taking a nice Sunday afternoon nap! :)
