I am a proud wife, mama of two, and volunteer, both as a University of Tennessee alumna (and Vol fan!) and as someone who enjoys serving in this wonderful community. After ten years working in higher education, I became a stay-at home mom in 2014. Parenting has taught me to let go of perfectionism, laugh at myself, and embrace grace daily. When I’m not chasing or chauffeuring, I enjoy Bible study, reading, group fitness classes, dressing up, exploring local venues, daydreaming, and planning my next adventure.
