Born and raised in North Carolina, southern grit & grace were embedded into her daily life from the get-go. She was raised equally in the church and in the woods, and enjoys spending much of her time outside in the fresh air. From fishing to hunting to golfing, she connects with God through nature and has learned much of her life lessons through her experiences outdoors. Family is her most treasured blessing in life and it continues to grow, as she and her husband Jim are expecting their firstborn son, Wyatt Otis, in February.
