I grew up in Lebanon, TN. I went to a little country school, Tuckers Crossroads, through grade 8. I started playing basketball in junior high and went on to play basketball and volleyball at Lebanon High School where I graduated in 2002. I continued playing volleyball in college at Cumberland University and graduated wiith my degree in education in 2006. My husband Dusty and I were married that same year.

Dusty and I have now been married for 10 years, and we have 3 children- two girls and a boy. Dusty was called into the ministry in 2012, and we began serving in Gordonsville, TN part time as youth minister. Close to two years later, God called him into full time ministry and we relocated our family to Alexandria, TN. We love the small town, close-knit community, and we look forward to many more years here!
