A Bit About Me:

I'm married, have three daughters, two stepsons, and two (twin) stepdaughters. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with my bachelor's degree (where I played varsity basketball), from Tennessee Tech University with my master's, and also earned post-graduate hours at John Brown University and the University of Arkansas. I was a Captain in the U.S. Army.
