Q: As GBA members meet you or talk to you for the first time, what can they expect from you?
A: An excited and motivated member of the GBA team with a welcoming smile.

Q: Who is someone that has influenced your chosen career path?
A: I cannot name just one, so here are my top three: Johnny Smith (former president and CEO of Newton Federal Bank), Greg Proffitt (current president of Affinity Bank) and of course Joe Brannen!

Q: What might someone be surprised to learn about you?
A: I spend most of my weekends getting muddy with my children, riding ATVs and Side-by-Sides.

Q: When you’re not on the job at GBA, what do you like to do?
A: Spend time with family and friends. Cliché, I know, but it’s what I enjoy most!

Q: If you weren’t doing what you do today, what career path would you have chosen?
A: A singer! But the good Lord above decided that I did not need that talent. However, my kids enjoy my solo concerts in the car.

Q: First tap/click of the day?
A: Tapping my kids to get them out of the bed

Q: Most used app?
A: Cozi – a shared family organizer app that allows you to track everyone’s activities on one calendar and even uses color coding. You can also add shopping lists and to-do lists. For a busy family of five, this is a must!

Q: TV show or series you love?
A: The Walking Dead and Yellowstone
