My husband Jason is the owner of D-BAT ROCKET CITY, an indoor baseball and softball facility in Huntsville. I have two children, Rian and KJ, and when I am not busy watching them play sports I love to spend time at home , enjoying our dog, Jake, and hanging out on our back patio. This is my fourth year teaching PE and coaching girls basketball and I am so excited to be an EAGLE!!!
