Favorite Scripture:

Past jobs and/or current hobbies unrelated to your profession, that might be interesting to students:
My first job was as the piano player at a restaurant called Country Kitchen. Not awesome. I was a barista at Starbucks and loved it!  I am an unabashed “coffee snob!”
I enjoy reading, being outside, staying active, exploring new places, and trying new restaurants and coffee shops with my husband Tommy.  My kids, JoJo and Jack, keep me on my toes!  I also enjoy writing for various publications. Creative non-fiction is my niche.
