Hi there!
I like to think of WAGS Redefined as the result of courageous conviction to tell my story and more importantly, the stories of others.

I’m a small town Indiana girl who has always had big city aspirations. I left my hometown at the age of 17 and moved to Georgia to pursue my dreams of playing basketball. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to have a half-way decent work ethic, which enabled me to play basketball at the Division I level (Mercer). My years as an athlete certainly taught me leadership, discipline, perseverance, and how to dedicate the necessary hours to my passions.

After graduating from Emory University, the real fun began and I was posed with the question, “What now?”. Naturally, I enrolled in grad school (Georgia State University). A few years trying out different jobs and businesses, and a couple degrees later, I found myself asking more important questions like, “What is my purpose?” I prayed, talked to God, and read Scripture to find my answers. This online community is a part of my answer.
I am a happy newlywed, fortunate enough to do life with a selfless man who keeps me laughing. We recently welcomed our son Jayce into the world and are the parents of two furbabies (lovable English bulldogs) as well. I am a sweet tooth and yet ironically, a fitness advocate. In my free time, I enjoy working out with my husband, reading books, listening to podcasts, writing, traveling, playing sports, and spending time with our pups. I am a die hard football fan of whichever team my husband is playing for.

I hope you find value in the site. Welcome.
