Will grew up in Birmingham and attended college at UAB. Will and his wife, Ryann, were married in 2010, and have one daughter, Olivia. He is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of music, back porches, sports, and his wife's cooking.
Ryann was born and raised in Alabama, loves all things Alabama, and thinks that although traveling is fun, there’s nothing like coming home to Birmingham. She is a fan of her family (husband: Will; daughter: Olivia; cat: Gizmo; dog: Pete), games (board games, cards, sports), and all things food. When she’s not doing those things, she’s either working on plans for CFC Kids, working at her other job (at an adult education center), or napping. It can be a pretty even toss-up between the three.
