I grew up in Portland, Texas. I’m a proud graduate of East Cliff Elementary (where this photo was taken) and Gregory-Portland High School. Go Wildcats! I’ve also lived in San Marcos, Austin, and Corpus Christi, Texas (my heart will always be in Texas); Gambier, Ohio (brrrr!); and Decatur, Georgia.
My husband is an economist and the interim director of the School of Social Science at Southern Miss (Ward Sayre), my daughter is a junior at Agnes Scott College, and my son is a senior at Hattiesburg High School.
I like to run, knit, watch movies, walk my dogs (Sara and Bennie), and scratch the heads of my cats (Lexi and Rami).
Our animal friends keep us very busy. All of them come from the Southern Pines Animal Shelter, so who really knows “what” they are. As best we know, though, Bennie is a terrier mix and Sara is a cockapoo. The kittens are just a mess–brothers and friends.
