After spending four years living in Panama City, FL, the beach is something that makes Breanne happy. Cooking from soul food to whatever she can make in an Instapot is a hobby she enjoys. She devours books most recently through audiobooks, as books have the ability to take her to a place of peace or even distraction that tends to act as a recharging opportunity. Breanne has three dogs (Rasta, Princess, and Jake from State Farm) who keep her busy outside of work.
