Born and raised in Houma, having lived in Lafayette and now living in Baton Rouge, I am a wife, mom and entrepreneur. My husband, Scott and I have three boys named Colston (4) and twins - Rowan and Reeves (3). I graduated in 2013 from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a B.A. in Broadcasting. I worked in radio for 11 years being on the air and holding multiple management titles at 94.5 KSMB & 101.5 WYNK. While working in radio, I also worked in TV news and other jobs. Currently, my husband and I own an insurance business (Scott Tully Allstate), I work at the Louisiana Department of Health as a Communications Coordinator, and we invest in real estate. I carry with me from radio a rebranded podcast called 'Mommy on the Geaux.' As a mom who does not stop, I also love fitness, being outdoors, eating out with family / friends & traveling.
