More Things About Me! I was born in Saint Petersburg, Florida. I have two brothers and parents that have been together for 48 years. I am a product of a military upbringing in which my family traveled extensively. In addition, I married an officer in the army! Last year, he retired from the army after 28 years of active duty and service. I am very proud of him! January 2nd will mark our 12th year living in Douglasville, Georgia. Also, that's my birthday! Another thing about me is that I love to workout!  It is not unusual to find me in Gold's gym at Hospital Drive or Chapel Hill!

One more that I love your children and my job! Working for Burnett is more than a job; it is a passion! So I thank God everyday that I GET to work with you and your children.
