I am originally from Jacksonville, Florida and have lived in Chattanooga for 15 years. I am the mother of two girls and two cats. I am in my second year of graduate school at UTC for Social Work and graduated from Southern Adventist University with a Bachelors of Science in Child and Family Studies. I am a passionate advocate for women and children’s rights and developing their resilience to become self-sufficient, strong minded, and independent. I enjoy hiking, camping, live music, and spending time with friends and family, especially on the beach. My favorite fruit/vegetable is avocados.
