What do you want BSE to know about you?
I have wanted to be a nurse since I was 7 years old. I have 4 brothers who live all over the US and awesome parents who live in Memphis. I love to travel and have had the awesome opportunity to do missions in 6 different countries, spending all summer every summer overseas in college. My husband and I have been married since March of 2018 and eat burgers on the 10th of every month (I call it burgerversary). He is the Missions associate at our church and is getting his Masters in Missions so we can go overseas full time some day! And what I find to be the most exciting thing about me, I am currently growing a tiny human! Due in February 2020!
My favorite photo of myself is me winning the wackiest sock award while sporting some great christmas socks that I bought my husband that has my face on them. I won a chick-fil-a gift card and that’s just my favorite too.
