I am married to Ryan Smith. I have two daughters, Cory and Amy Collins. Cory did attend Marion for several years, and graduated from Bergman High School in 2014. Amy attends school in Marion now.
We have two dogs, Holly and Ella.
I love doing just about anything outdoors. I grew up with an older brother, a neighborhood full of boys, and uncles who all treated me like one of the guys and allowed me to tag along with their adventures. I have so many things that I like to do that I rarely find myself bored. This includes rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, and canoeing when I am near an area to do it. I love fishing and running nets/trotlines on the river. I have developed a passion for deer and duck hunting. I love camping, snorkeling, swimming, geocaching, riding fourwheelers, and playing in the mud. I dont mind cleaning and enjoy cooking. I love to do vinyasa and bikram yoga, and really miss my groups in Harrison. I travel just about every chance I get and have visited ten different countries so far.
