About Joyanna

Home: I live in Nashville, TN, but I am originally from Clinton, TN

Work: I work for the State of Tennessee doing contract procurement and management.

Education: I graduated from the University of Tennessee in May 2014 with a Master's of Public Policy and Administration. I got my undergrad degree at Maryville College in 2011 in International Studies with minors in Political Science, French, and Nonprofit Management. I also studied French at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland for one semester.

Hobbies: I love to play board games, card games, and word games. I also enjoy reading...for fun, not required textbook chapters (it's a new concept to me now that I am done with school). I love to dance, although now the only time I get to dance is in my Zumba class at the gym.

How We Met

We met at the Kamanawannametca Luau at Maryville College in 2007. The luau is held the first week of school for incoming students to mingle. We started dating a few months later; our first date was at the International Dance hosted on campus. Since we met at Maryville College, we wanted to go back as alums to pledge our vows.
