I grew up in a little town called Lexa, Arkansas. I moved to Jonesboro at the age of 16 years old. I played basketball and ran track throughout school. I graduated from Jonesboro High School in 2004.  I started my nursing career at the age of 20 as a licensed practical nurse.  I have three children: Chanel (15), Eddie (9) and Hadley (2).  I enjoy coaching basketball, fishing, traveling and the greatest joy, spending time with my family.
