I grew up in a small town in Arkansas but have been in OK for about 30 years; so even though I go back to AR several times a year to visit family, Oklahoma is home now. I graduated from Southern Nazarene University with a BS in Organizational Leadership. Pretty much my entire career has been in Human Resources as Director of HR; I’ve been blessed to get to work for some great companies, like Paycom and 180 Medical.
I’ve been married to Mike Hodnett for 7 years, he’s a manager at Hobby Lobby’s distribution center. We have three children, Jordan (22 and works at Hobby Lobby), Mark (21 and engineering student at OSU) and Tehia (pastor on staff at Journey Church in Norman); Tehiais married and has four kids so I’m “Gigi” to Gavi (8), Nora (5), Abbott (2) and Eli (one week old!).
We love to vacation in Colorado hiking and exploring new area each summer, relaxing in the pool and playing with our labradoodle, Lucy.
