Interesting fact: I grew up as a farmer’s daughter in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. My favorite place is the beach. I’ve been a vegetarian for 30+ years. I love a variety of all types of music. I once accidentally stepped on a tarantula while hiking in Arizona, where I also came a little too close to a Mojave rattlesnake. As a teenager, I served on the state youth leadership team of the NC State Grange. As a random fact, I once worked as a photographer at Sears portrait studio, creating more than a few awkward family photos.
