My family is my number-one priority. I spend a lot of time supporting my three kids in their activities, including competitive soccer, basketball, and competitive cheer. Volunteering in their schools and giving back to the community and my church are also very important to me. I like to exercise, be involved, and spend time outside, whether that’s working in the yard or attending Southeastern Conference football games.
