How did you get started in your profession?

My mother was determined to keep us busy as children. We painted tshirts, made pottery, cooked bread, wrote stories, crocheted blankets. Even as I became an engineer, the crafting part of me was always there and was often my main source of stress relief.

Why do you love Chattanooga?

The view when you drive into Chattanooga with the mountain on your right and the river to your left. It sucks me in every time.

What's one topic you'd like to learn through The Chattery?

More legal stuff...wills, estate planning, setting up a trust

What's something someone would be surprised to learn about you?

My 80-year-old grandmother is my crafting double. She has discovered Pinterest and will try anything that looks interesting. I plan to live my life the same way.
