Her company has been hired to manage local and destination events for guests of up to 1000 individuals over a span of several days. Her experiences in the corporate world and the event industry led her to her current position as Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for the organization Love Without Reason (LWR). Over the last ten years, she has volunteered with LWR and served on the Board of Directors advancing the mission to help children born with facial deformities, who are also at risk for being sold into trafficking networks.

She resides in Chattanooga with her husband Joey, and her two kids, her daughter Isabelle and her son Jack (Jack is her Cockapoo dog). During her down time she enjoys cooking with her daughter, entertaining guests, re-watching 80s tv shows, listening to 80’s music, and working on her bed and breakfast.
Her favorite quote is: “I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
