A: My husband and I met at East Tennessee State University. We moved out to Bend, Oregon with our fur child, Ella about 5 years ago. We are true weekend warriors. On any given weekend you will often find us skiing at Bachelor, biking or running on the trails or enjoying on of the fabulous campground in the area. While we do consider Bend home, come football season we are all Tennessee Volunteers.

A: I am the Fitness Manager at Tetherow Sport and coach at a local high school. I love the relational aspect of both positions.
