I am a hard-working, fun-loving academic. Up until now my life has been about school and now that I have closed that chapter of my life I am ready to open a new one. Raised in the South I tend to always practice Southern hospitality as I do have a flair for entertaining. I love nothing more than to have friends and family over for a home-cooked meal. I have a great love for the amazing life I have been blessed with filled with family, friends, and plenty of laughter. I also tend to be an even-tempered, happy person and like to see the glass as half full.
