Misty was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and became a brand new Memphian in 2015. She married Aaron in 2008, and together they have three girls: Eden (March 2012), Elyana (Sept 2013), and Elise (June 2015). Since 2007, Misty has worked in private practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Provisionally Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She is passionate about helping women, children, and families grow and heal. Misty recently became a stay-at-home mom and is soaking up all the extra time with her little ones as they explore the big city of Memphis. When she’s not playing dress up and painting tiny toes, she likes to read, eat Cajun food, and cheer on her alma mater, the LSU Tigers. Misty and her crew live in Arlington.
