A Brief History
Updated: Sep 10, 2020
I’m a born and bred Georgia Peach who's life began at Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA, on June 8, 1991. I'm a Gemini in every sense. I was blessed to be born to two phenomenal, supportive, loving parents, along with a quiet, intelligent, hard-working older brother. I grew up in Woodstock, in the house my parents owned for 19 years, and learned so much about life there.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in March 2002, went to a private, Christian elementary school, a public high school, and was home-schooled through most of middle school. I graduated from Woodstock High School in 2009 and chose a college that was just far enough away, yet close enough that I could do laundry at my parents' house (#score). The only thing I really gained from that one semester was a whole lot of debt, and I transferred to the local university the next semester.
#PlotTwist - I had started down a negative path my first semester of college, eventually dropped out of school, and began working full-time. I became consumed with drug-use and eventually lost my job. After getting clean and back on my feet, I worked as a waitress to support myself while I tried to figure out what I wanted out of life.
Eventually, I had enough of serving and found a job as an order processor at a custom bobblehead company. To say that job was interesting would be an understatement. However, I was still unhappy and unsure of where to go from there. My now-husband, Christian, worked in Insurance and suggested I work to obtain my license. So I did. I worked in Insurance for about 3 years until the Coronavirus pandemic hit. I decided to take a break from the working world while everything was so uncertain. During that time, we sold our home and built a new one - and I fell in love with real estate. Now I'm in the process of becoming a licensed real estate agent with Keller Williams!
I've always worn many hats, but being a realtor and owning a small business is a whole new venture for me. Wish me luck!
