Jenny loves playing fetch with her cocker spaniel Toby (who accompanies her to the office most days) and watching her niece and nephew play sports in Asheville.† She loves filling her dining room table with friends and family and dabbles in icon writing.† Shortly after moving to Gaffney, Jenny met Miles Gettys (you may know him from Gaffney Lumber Company) and fell in love;† they were married at Incarnation in 2011.† They dream of one day retiring to Edisto Beach where Jenny will help protect the baby sea turtles and Miles will work for beach patrol, riding around on a gator passing out plastic cups to those littering the beach with dangerous glass bottles.
