I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years and we have 3 kids; a son in 4th grade, a son in 1st grade, and a daughter who is 3. Originally from New York, we moved down to South Carolina at the end of 2020. I have been working in banking for almost 15 years. Currently, I work as a Policy Manager at a bank. I love spending time making memories with my family. I have enjoyed being able to meet people and help with events at the school through the PTO.
Hi! My family and I moved here from Chicago in 2021. My husband, Brad, and I have two children. Payton is a first grader at VWES, and Colton attends preschool. We love being outdoors.
