Then, she cheered and ran track for Soddy Daisy High School and cheered for UTC in college. While doing all of this she still maintained above a 3.5 gpa to attain a B.S. in Biochemistry (2007). Now in her post-college years, she still runs every other day (she considers exercise "addictive"), is a Green Life "junkie," and tries to educate the rest of the family on our nutrition habits & the importance of vitamins.

Perfect because: She is just as beautiful inside as she is out. Her smile is contagious. She is strong, independent, humble, GENEROUS, and classy. She can relate to diverse sets of people and has experienced living in many diverse cities (Chicago, St Louis, Charlotte, Cleveland (Ohio), Louisville, KY), which shows her strength of character in that it never changed who she is. She has had her focus on her career and establishing herself since she entered high school. She is often considered the "all-american girl," and, that description fits her well. She loves kids, is passionate/ optimistic about her life (as well as those in it), and places others before herself. Along with all of this, she never has taken herself too seriously/ has a great sense of humor..
