Favorite Food? Definitely seafood! I can always go for a good crab cake or some shrimp.

I met the Acuff’s in 2016 and after hearing the mission and vision I was compelled to be a part of it. Will and Tiffany are not only strong leaders but great people and I was beyond thrilled to support them and Corner to Corner as a board member.
