Fun fact about me, I used to work in Law Enforcement! I used to interview the Sheriff in Gibson County every month, and I thought that everything about it was interesting. I attended a Citizen's Academy, and decided to apply to be a Reserve Deputy. Shockingly, I was chosen! A lot of training hours were put in every month. I learned to shoot & clean a gun. I went through training on how to drive a police car, and they actually let me. This led me to a 3 year career as a 911 Operator, which is hands down, the most stressful job ever. It also led me to meet my husband, who was a Deputy at the time. He is now an Officer with EVSC.
