Hobbies: Attending any good football game, and reading in the off season!

Community Service: For the past four years I have volunteered at Meals on Wheels and in public schools.

Most Memorable Story: One of the most memorable stories, I've ever told was when I met an elderly widow and widower. They lost everything during Hurricane Katrina and met at a shelter in Mississippi. They decided to use their money from FEMA to share a small motel room. They built an amazing relationship, showing me that beautiful things can come out of devastating tragedy.
