HOBBIES

I love my job! I truly enjoy helping others achieve their goals through education and the field of accounting and I feel very fortunate to be able to do this at my alma mater, Athens State. When I’m not working, I enjoy painting, reading, cooking, and building things with my hands. I’m a big football and hockey fan even though I have no skill in either sport. I have a huge heart for animals and love my volunteer work with local animal rescue groups. I regularly host foster cats and dogs in my home where I care for, train, and love them until they are adopted into permanent homes. Of course, I’m a little partial to my personal animals, including my wonderful dogs (Archer, Buttercup, Baxter, and Harley) and my beautiful cat (Ellie aka LL Cool Kitty).
