Fun fact about yourself?
Outside of work, I am outnumbered at home! 6 males to 1 female!
My favorite food is definitely curry! I love the aroma, taste, and spice level all combined. So much flavor, richness, and warmth makes it my favorite meal.
My go-to drink is iced tea. Unsweetened with lemon all day long. However, if I am in Texas or Georgia, I will ask for a glass of sweet tea!
This is a trick question, right? So many choices. However, my favorite dessert, hands down is peach pie!
Hobbies outside of work?
We are a baseball and football family and love outdoor sports and activities. I love to swim, work in my yard, music, and read. You will find me in my pool from morning to night on my off days. I love the water and love to swim. My favorite pastime activities include working in my yard, outdoor sports, reading, and too many DIY projects that Charlie and I should never have even considered taking on ourselves. I love the holidays, and I love to decorate for the holidays. I enjoy preparing anything and everything on the grill and especially love making meals from scratch. I am a fan of clean and non-toxic products. If it is my home, it is most likely non-toxic. I love music, as we play all day long at home. I also love genres of music and enjoy dancing too. And if I ever have a day just to myself, you can find me at the spa.
Where are you from?
I am a small-town girl from Ohio. A big city girl by heart, however, growing up in Ohio was genuinely remarkable. I remember the long summer days that seemed to stretch on forever. The years were filled with adventure...
Summer pool days from early morning to night, boating, fishing, water skiing, and Friday night football. Perhaps the most defining part of living in the Ohio Valley was growing up on country music. As a teenager, country music was always on the radio while we were driving down back country roads, at bonfires, at county fairs, and anywhere in between. Growing up in Ohio will always hold a special place in my heart. It instilled the value of family, hard work, and perseverance in me.
I attended Bowling Green State University. I have a dual bachelor's degree with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications.
The most important aspect of my life is my four sons! They are my most significant accomplishment, pride, and joy, making me proud!!!!
