I am incredibly blessed that the fine folks at TSM allow me to do what I enjoy every day. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and he still makes me feel like the prettiest girl in the room (even though I wake up looking like a troll!). I adore him, our three children, and our grand-daughter who calls me "Gigi." I love the beach and spending quiet weekends with my husband at home listening to great country music! I cut my teeth back in the day on Randy Travis, George Strait, The Judds, Reba, and Garth Brooks. However, I am a fan of today's stars like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Drake White, and all the other talented musicians paving their own paths.
