Britney Hornaday Boroughs

I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter, and a Sigma Sigma Sigma. I recently graduated the University of Arkansas at Monticello and I hold an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science.

I never knew that being the mother of a preschooler could be so hectic. I learn something new every day and my daughter never ceases to amaze me.

I am learning how to balance parenting, my career, and my recently developed passion for writing. I love to write almost as much as I love Twilight.

My husband and I are starting the Executive Masters of Public Administration program at Southern Arkansas University in the spring. I am sure that it will be quite an adventure. I'm not sure what the future holds for us but I am sure that it will be exciting.
