I’m a Southern girl born and raised in Marietta, GA, though after college I spent quite a few years moving around the country from Park City, Utah to New York City then New Orleans before coming back home to Marietta.
I have a wonderful family – a great husband, two pretty adorable kids and a crazy dog. With my sisters, parents and in-laws living close by, I feel pretty lucky to be able to raise my children around their extended family. Family is very important to me and I could not do what I do without them.
I’m a foodie at heart having worked in the restaurant industry for many years. Good food and wine go hand in hand around my family. I love to cook and get in the kitchen and create recipes. It has always been an outlet for me to relieve stress and I always feel great joy in feeding others a good meal.
Before having children, I competed in many half-marathons, triathlons, a marathon and two Ironman races. I jokingly refer to myself as a “recovered triathlete.” I still enjoy running though and generally staying active with my children. I can’t wait to introduce my children to snow skiing, one of my other loves that has taken a back seat the past few years.
