    Commissioner
    Chambers County, Ala.

    Number of years active in NACo: 12

    Years in public service: 12

    Occupation: real estate broker

    Education: associate degree in business and graduate, Avery Yarbrough School of Real Estate

    The hardest thing I’ve ever done: battle breast cancer. I was diagnosed this year and had a double mastectomy in March.

    Three people (living or dead) I’d invite to dinner: my grand­mother (dead), Max Lucado (living), Oprah Winfrey (living)

    A dream I have is to: provide a home for a family that has never owned their own home.

    You’d be surprised to learn that I: have been married for 25 years to the same man.

    My favorite way to relax is: travel in my RV.

    I’m most proud of: my family.

    Every morning I read: a devo­tion and my Bible.

    My favorite meal is: dessert first and then the main course. I prefer meat­loaf and green beans.

    My pet peeve is: uncomfort­able shoes.

    My motto is: A smile makes everyone feel better.

    The last book I read was: Grace for the Moment.

    My favorite movie is: Pretty Woman.

    My favorite music is: Country.

    My favorite president is: Ronald Reagan.

    My county is a NACo member because: we un­derstand the value of joining together with other counties to protect ourselves against unfunded mandates — and the knowledge we gain by learning from our peers.
