Personal Interests

I am a wife and a new mommy and enjoy spending time with my husband and baby. I have lived in Knoxville and worked at UT for 6 years and in that time come to accept the irresistible pull of cheering for the Vols, though I grew up with relatives that were avid UGA and FSU fans. Besides my work at UT, I am also a professional dancer and spend a good deal of my free time in rehearsal, getting ready for upcoming performances at private and public events throughout Knoxville. I am also active member in my church, Redeemer, which is located in the Fort. I love to cook, read, crochet, and I spend more time then I would like to admit watching either BBC period pieces or bad reality TV.


Education

BA, History with Social Studies Licensure, University of North Carolina - Greensboro
