Originally from Georgia, I live in Lincolnton with my father and my two dogs, a little mini Schnauzer rescue dog, JoJo, and a mini Schnoodle puppy named Holly. My favorite activities are spoiling my nieces and nephews; camping, fishing, kayaking, photography, history, crafts, and baking; and attending Southern gospel music concerts. I love the Georgia Bulldogs! My Dad and I attend dirt track races, Crawdads baseball games, and West Lincoln football games whenever possible.
