27 year old Naval nurse born in Montgomery, Alabama, but was raised in Franklin, Tennessee. I am the middle of 2 brothers (and the only girl!).

I started out in Portsmouth, Virginia, and now live in Pensacola. I have one deployment under my belt, to Djibouti, Africa. I have three fur babies, named Xena, Bella, and Louie, and am married to the most amazing human ever, my husband Chris.
