My grandparents were farmers who worked hard, took care of their community, and appreciated the land. From them, I grew up with unique experiences on the farm, and I learned to appreciate the work of our hands.
My father, the "fixer." He has a kind heart and loves others. He has always been my coach. My favorite memories are of us spending time together on the river, enjoying quiet company. He married his high school sweet heart and now resides at his home place, Burns Quarter Farm
My mom amazes me. She worked full time and was a full time Mom. She never missed a chance to support me. She always wanted me to
become educated so I could take care of myself. She always puts the needs of others first.
Becca always dreamed
of being a doctor, hoping to
cure cancer at M.D. Anderson.
She is an example of resilience,
intelligence, and enthusiasm.
I married my best friend. We
have been together since we were
fifteen. He runs his family business,
Tidewater Lumber Corporation. He works
tirelessly but always finds time to take care
of his family and community. We spend our
summers together on the Rappahannock River.
Quality over quantity:
I've always preferred the
company of a kind, trusting friend
over a crowd. I believe in genuine
smiles and kind hearts.
I will always be a
teacher at heart. I
love my students and
their stories. I hope to
help them each become their
best version of themselves.
