I am originally from Martin, Tennessee...way to the West!!  I graduated in 1998 from Westview High School.  I received my Bachelor's degree and Masters degree from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.  While teaching at Karns High School in Knoxville, Tn, I met my husband, Russell Overholt, at a Special Olympics competition at Ober Gatlinburg.  We were both snowboard coaches at the competition.  Russell is originally from Greeneville and attended school at West Greene High School.  He is also the announcer at all home football and basketball games.  I have one stepson, Trevor, and a son named Christian who attends school at Nolachuckey Elementary School.
