About John and Emily


John and I have been married since February, 2003. Together we have 5 children. When we got married they were 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. When our youngest left for college we got an “our’s” child, Watson. He is a miniature poodle and looks just like a little teddy bear.


John grew up on a large working family farm in rural Mississippi and moved to Chattanooga to go to college in 1982. I am the oldest of 8 children and I was born and raised in Chattanooga. We still reside in the area.


John enjoys home improvement projects and he is my go to fix it guy. I enjoy being at home, spending time with my children, family, cooking and houseplants. Together we like to camp and kayak.
