Patriot Challenge Director
How long have you been with GallantFew?
I am new to GallantFew as of August 2021.
Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in the Phenix City/Columbus, Georgia area.
What is your connection to the military?
I am an active duty Ranger spouse. I have always been surrounded by either a veteran, like my grandfather that served in the Army, or active-duty personnel, like my brother that currently serves in the Navy.
What fuels you?
I am fueled by the feeling of being part of accomplishing something greater than myself.
What is your area of expertise?
My first love was the mathematics classroom, in which I hold a Master’s Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education. I spent 11 years in the classroom fostering relationships and building confidence in a diverse set of students. More recently, I have been connecting with students virtually from home and have been for the past 4 years.
What do you do to relax?
To relieve stress, I like to sling around a barbell in my garage. I always schedule this time with myself because it keeps me sane. When I am not lifting, you can find me sipping espresso or a dirty oat milk chai from a local coffee shop while I wind down from a busy day or week. Coffee is my love language. That, and dark chocolate! When I have the time, I also love to bake and travel as well.
With whom and where do you live?
I reside in Midland, GA with my two children, Israel and Rebel, my husband, Marc, and our dog, Remy.
Who is your role model?
I do not have a role model. I have always chosen different attributes, whether they be positive or negative, from the people that have crossed my path and used those parts to propel me into being a better person each and every day.
