I was born and raised in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and a graduate of Southside High School. I am the youngest of three girls and my parents (Lois and Jerry Wade - dad passed in 2020) are lifelong residents of Scott and Sebastian County. I have a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. I was a U.S.Probation Officer for 10.5 years in Arkansas and Texas. I chose to stay home for five (5) years when my daughters were born. Isabelle is 16yo and a Junior at Southside. She is a social officer for the Southern Belle Dance Team and an AP Scholar. Carly Grayce is 14yo and is attending the Northside Ninth Grade Academy next year. She is the social officer on the the 9th grade academy dance team and a member of volleyball team. In 2009 I went to work with Judge J. Michael Fitzhugh as his Trial Court Assistant which lasted ten (10) years. I received my real estate license in April 2021.
