1. Who are you and what do you do, and what is your background?
I was born in Augusta, Ga and considered myself an army brat since my West Point graduate dad retired when he was 53 and I was just three.  I grew up visiting  the campus of Augusta College where he taught accounting as a second career. My sister who is 17 years older  and my three brothers lived around the world but I believe there are pros and cons to how we were both raised.
Food and art are my main two loves. I debated about going to culinary school or to art school and art won because I knew I wanted a family and I did not want to work restaurant hours while I raised a family.
I went to Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC for an associates in jewelry and received my BFA from Augusta College that is now call Augusta State University.
