A little About Me:

I am a Blacksburg native. I married my high school sweetheart 20 years ago. We have two children and an Australian Shepherd. We love spending time at the river, lake, and hiking in the area. I was a substitute teacher for 5 years between Montgomery County and Pulaski County Public Schools. I became a homeschool mom in 2020. 

I also coordinated the Price's Fork Craft & Vendor Show the first 3 years. 

I love to support small businesses and I cannot wait to meet you all!
