Becki was born and raised in East Tennessee and loves to get back to the mountains every chance she gets. After two years together and just a few months of marriage, her husband told her he was ready to follow his dreams and join the Marine Corps. So far they’ve made it through MOS school and are at their first duty station. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has always been worth it. She has two beautiful daughters, one sweet cat, a another cat she feels is secretly plotting to take over the world. She loves reading, taking long bubble baths and baking. She and her husband have been married for just over 3 years and are stationed at Cherry Point, NC.
