Fun Fact:

I’m sharp on southern culture and would win a Jeopardy category on three letter airport codes!  My greatest joys are my husband, Matt, our two precious rescue pups, Calvin and Delta Dawn, and our family and friends near and far.  I am a marathoner, love the Atlanta Braves and would always rather be at the beach.
