I'm a Show Me State girl by birth, but now have adopted Louisiana as my home. I have 3 wonderful children and 2 grandbabies, and a wonderful fiance who treats them as his own. Product of a PK/TK, I was raised under pretty strict rules, but my parents were loving and kind and still spoiled me, in some ways, especially since I was their only child. I have a degree in Public Relations from Freed-Hardeman University, but my real passion lies more in the journalism/writing area. I have some health issues that keep me from working outside the home, but when I was able to, I had a wide range of experiences. I have been a dispatcher for a Sheriff's Office, I've taught special needs preschoolers, I was managing editor of two different newspapers, Lifestyles Editor for another, and I have worked in three different hotel chains, and became hotel manager at the last one. I never meet a stranger, so I hope you will read, comment, or at least say hello from time to time so I know someone is out there!
