I am married to my college sweetheart, Ricky. We have 2 wonderful children. Our son Nick and his wife, Emily, live in Birmingham. Our daughter Allie lives in Huntsville and teaches special education and coaches middle school volleyball in Decatur, AL. We also have a cat that thinks he's a dog named Felix! He loves to play fetch and is very spoiled!!! I can't forget my "granddogs" Lola & Ralph, and my "grandcats" Curtis & Kodak.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We are huge Alabama Fans! Roll Tide!! (Except Emily is our Auburn Fan) We also like to cheer on the Braves!

I LOVE Chaffee and am so thankful to get to do what I love every day!!
