She has a lengthy work history as she started in the bookkeeping department of The Bank of Moulton and was later trained as a teller. She also worked at Wolverine Employees Credit Union in Alabama for 7 years before moving to Nashville, Tennessee, where she managed a branch of Lockheed Federal Credit Union.
