I am a WV girl, from a little town called Montgomery. It is right in the middle of Beckley and Charleston. I have heard all of the WV jokes too! I've lived in SC now for the 2nd half of my life and so you can only imagine what my accent sounds like!

I love math and the way it is either right or wrong. I grew up on a small college campus, went to college there and then moved to SC. My little family (me and my fur babies) just moved to a new "as is" home and I'm really enjoying fixing it up. My "people" family is mostly in FL now, but I do have some relatives in the Charleston, WV area.

A little known fact about me is that I collect Coca Cola items from all over the world. My favorite is a can of of Diet Coke from Germany. I also have bulldog statues all over my house!

A well known fact about me is that I LOVE SEC football. I fly a UGA flag (Hope is cuter than their mascot), but I pull for lots of teams. The only time I'm not pulling for UGA is when they play USC. I hated football for years, but now I watch all of them WVU (grew up there), Va Tech (my brother graduated there), UF (my parents live there), and the list goes on.
