  • Music I grew up listening to... Jimmy Buffett, Waylon Jennings, Reba, Van Morrison, Bon Jovi, Spice Girls & N’Sync
  • My family life is... HUGE! My husband Gared and I are newlyweds, but we live with our Beagle mix Cooper and that is plenty for us (right now). We love having a large extended family who we get to see almost every weekend, so if it’s not the three of us we are all together for a family get together, camping trips and any reason to let us have a bonfire at someone’s house.
  • My last impulse buy was... a grey and a white Yeti coffee mug (I still want one of every color!)
  • My favorite country artist to listen to is... This is hard! Right now, I love Luke Combs, Mitchell Tenpenny, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde and Brett Young
  • Right now my favorite Country song is... (EVEN HARDER!) “Alone Together” by Dan + Shay won’t get out of my head…Ask me next week and it’ll be a different one…
  • In my spare time I... play sand volleyball, hike our local Metro Parks with my dog Cooper, have bonfire nights with friends and take lots of naps!
