A Guide To Murfreesboro


Welcome to Murfreesboro, the geographic center of the state! Steeped rich in Civil War history, home to one of the largest universities in Tennessee, and one of the fastest growing cities in the state, the ‘Boro (as we locals call it), is a great place to live or pop by for a visit!

I have always felt the “small town vibe” here, even as we grow. There are lots of small businesses here from boutiques to coffee shops to restaurants. The greenway system is a great place to get outdoors, as it covers the entire city! The school systems (city, county, charter and private) are great, and give you many options to choose from. And there are plenty of job opportunities including Amazon, MTSU, and multiple manufacturing sites, just to name a few!

I am a single mom to two beautiful girls, Madison and Ellie. I work from home for a software company based out of Austin, and also work as a Plunder Design jewelry stylist. I live in Murfreesboro, and love suburban life! I am active in my church, World Outreach, and love supporting my alma mater MTSU. You can find me in Nashville any given Sunday in the fall, cheering on my beloved Titans! I am a huge football enthusiast, and love sports in general. In my downtime, I enjoy binging on Gilmore Girls, which I have seen over a hundred times each- it's a lifestyle!
