About Me!

Hi. I would like to give you an insight about myself. First of all, I currently reside in Charleston, SC, but that has not always been the case. I was born in Burlington, NC. Never heard of it? Well that’s because there is not a lot there! At the age of 14 my family decided to move to Mooresville, NC to follow my dad’s career. Mooresville is known as “Race City USA”. It is the home of many NASCAR teams, so can you guess why we moved there? My father is a team member for one of the NASCAR teams.  I attended high school in Mooresville, and then attended the local community college post graduation. I attended the community college for 2 years and at that time I earned my associates degree in political science. Why political science? I am really not sure. I took a government class my first year and loved the professor. After that, I tried getting in all of his classes he offered. Before long I realized I had taken all the classes I needed to have my associate degree in political science. Time flies when you are having fun! After getting my associates degree I transferred to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW). What a change! Away from parents, no more home cooked meals at night, no one telling me what I have to do… that can be good and bad. I had to definitely learn self-discipline and fast! I started UNCW as a junior with no specific degree in mind. I have always wanted to own my own spa. Knowing that I wanted to get my four year degree, I sat down and tried to figure out what degree would benefit me the most with owning a spa. Business? Accounting? I didn’t really know, so I decided to go with business. I took one semester of business classes, and I was so miserable! Granted some of the classes were interesting, it just wasn’t for me. After that experience, I talked with my counselor and realized that maybe communication studies would be a better choice. I enrolled in communication classes that next semester and loved all of them! Soon after, well 2 years later, I graduated from UNCW with a major in communication studies and a minor in psychology.  After graduation in December 2006 I packed my bags and headed to California. Why California? Well why not??? California is great! Honestly though it was not just because I like California. The guy that I was dating at the time moved to California for a job. I applied for a job at the same place in California. I got the job and headed to California. So you can say that I moved there for a guy, or a job…. whatever you think sounds better! After living in California for 2 years and dating this amazing guy, we took a vacation back to the Carolinas. I was the Maid Of Honor in NC for my best friend, Hannah, so we decided to make a vacation out of our trip. Where did we go? Well it’s easier to answer where we didn’t go! We went to Las Vegas NV, Charlotte NC, Mooresville NC, Raleigh NC, Wilmington NC, Charleston SC, Mooresville NC, Charlotte NC and back to Las Vegas NV. We were busy bees! This was the best trip ever! Why you might ask….. well while we were in Charleston, SC Jason ask me to marry him! It was the most special time of my life! I was so excited that he didn’t even get to ask! He bent down and brought out the ring box and I just started jumping and screaming! I was the happiest girl alive! A year later we tied the knot in Wilmington, NC! But to add to the story we decided to move across country before getting married…. not once, but twice! After being engaged for 5 months we decided to move to the Washington DC area (job related). We got settled into that big city fast, but it didn’t feel like home. No comparsion to California! Jason (my finance at the time) knew that we were not happy there so we started weighing his options and decided to take a chance and start his own company. He did it! 7 months later we moved to Mount Pleasant, SC (Charleston). We got married one month after living in Mount Pleasant, SC and now we are a happy little family living in an amazing town. We love it here and Jason’s company couldn’t be doing any better. We have a great life!
