     A born and raised Georgia girl, I grew up loving sweet tea and Friday Night football. From the time I was 6 years old, I knew I wanted to grow up and become an elementary teacher. Carson-Newman was the only college I ever dreamed of attending, since I had been going with my parents to homecomings and specials events since I was born. 

    Freshman year at Carson-Newman, my roommate, Hannah, introduced me to Ryan. He was a very kind, sports-loving guy. After only 8 months of dating, we were engaged. However, we waited until after we graduated from college to get married. 

     Four days after our wedding, we moved to New Orleans for Ryan to attend seminary and I would be teaching 4th grade at Calvary Baptist School. New Orleans was our home for two years, a very special time we will never forget.

     Tennessee had been calling our names, and when the opportunity arose for us to move back, we jumped on it! A year after moving back, we found out we were going to have a baby, our precious, kind, adorable daughter Cathryn. She is now two years old. Right now, we are looking to buy a home so that we can make Tennessee our life-long home!
