I am married to my husband, Ryan Gardner, for 7 years. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Lainie and Reese. Reese will be starting Preschool this year at Nettleton Pre-K and Lainie will be going into the 8TH grade. We have 2 dogs, Harley and Patton. Harley is a black lab that loves the outdoors and swimming, and Patton is a Shi Tzu that loves to be lazy indoors.
