Childhood dream: I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. My aunt was a teacher at Jacob G. Smith, and I used to go to her classroom after school. Sometimes I would go read to her students. Once I started at Georgia Southern, I quickly realized teaching was a lot more than fun and games all day.
Best piece of business advice: OHIO. Only handle it once.
How I find strength during adversity: I say a little prayer to myself: Isaiah 40:31.
How I find inspiration: I like to go for a run through Forsyth and take a loop around the Historic District.
