Can you tell us about yourself?
I enjoy spending time with family, lots of traveling, walking, riding bikes, working out, watching movies, and managing my son.
What led you to open your business?
Opening my own business has always been something that i wanted to do. Once my children became adults it really became an option. I was planning to open another business and the music teacher at the school I was teaching at, at the time, suggested I open a Frios and the rest is history.
Why downtown Newnan?
Perfect location. It’s a cozy little town. And I taught in Newnan for 20 years and lived there for many years. My kids all graduated from Newnan High, so why not downtown Newnan?!
What is your inspiration?
God is my greatest inspiration followed by my family and music. Finding ways to connect to my passion and purpose also inspire me.
Can you tell us about your business?
