I was born and raised in Richlands Virginia. I graduated from Richlands High School and attended SWVA Community College. I have been married to Gary Nease a local contractor for 40 years. I attend Claypool Hill Church of Christ in Pounding Mill, VA.

My career in accounting started in 1980 with Robert G. Shepherd CPA. After Mr. Shepherd retired in 2003 Michael Bandy purchased the firm and I continued my career with him.
