I was born in New Hampshire, but moved to Tennessee at a very young age, and attended Maryville High School. I then went on to Clemson University, graduating with a degree in English. My first job out of school was working for Rolling Stone Magazine in New York.
Life changing decisions brought me to Knoxville in my early twenties. I had quit my job in New York, and was hired as a temp to answer the phones at a very young mortgage company, called Mortgage Investors Group (MIG). I hated that job, but for some reason, when MIG needed a temp again, they requested me. I ended up loving the employees at MIG. So, when a new position was offered to me, I took the job! It was supposed to be only for a few months, but here I am twenty something years later!
I spend most of my free time with my husband Harvey, traveling and enjoying time with friends as we are recent empty nesters. We have two daughters in college. One is a Vol for Life at the University of Tennessee, and my youngest attends Loyola University Chicago.
I am a member of the Farragut Rotary Club where I serve as a Youth Exchange Counselor. Our club sponsors kids from around the world, most recently from Finland, Ecuador and Germany. This volunteer work has allowed me the opportunity to continue to make connections with young kids from the around the world, and was a natural fit when my two went off to college. I enjoy this opportunity to give back to the community.
