Even though I have lived in Olive Branch for the past 20 years, I was born in Jackson, MS. After I graduated from Rust College, I remained in north MS.

I have been married for almost 26 years (Sept. 2020). We have two sons. My oldest son is studying in the healthcare field. My youngest son is a seventh grader who keeps us busy with soccer and his active social life. We have a sweet  chocolate lab named Cocoa. We are active members of Brown Baptist Church in Southaven, MS, where I'm a Sunday School teacher as well.

I enjoy reading, cooking- especially when trying new recipes or remaking restaurant dishes and quiet time outside. My favorite foods are pizza with a salad, cookies and a hot cup of coffee or tea.
