My husband, Bryan, and I grew up in Dalton and were married in 1992. Today, we have four beautiful children and one daughter-in-law.

Needless to say, our family has a genuine love and a strong connection to the Dalton community. We’re invested in the success of the region and the quality of life of our residents. Our greatest sense of pride comes from supplying jobs to families in our community.
