I grew up in Dahlonega and graduated from Lumpkin County High School in 2000’, then attended ABAC in Tifton for a few years and completed my Bachelor’s Degree at the UGA with emphasis on Agricultural Education. Two weeks after graduation, we got married and two weeks later left on an adventurous road trip to live in Montana. I moved back to Dahlonega and taught Agriculture at the local High School. After a year, we decided to have a child, so I stayed at home for the next few years. Five years ago, I started a non-profit called Team Give Back and we have fundraised and donated over $65,000 to families in Dahlonega. I currently work as the Administrative Assistant to the Sheriff. I absolutely love my job and the people I get to work with each day. My husband and I have two girls 13 and 1 and we are expecting our third child in March.
