Evie is a former Army Brat who said she would never marry into the military. Well, after 3 years of long distance dating, she married her soldier in 2011. They have gone through 3 deployments together, moved to 4 different duty stations, and had 1 overseas assignment to South Korea. Evie was named the 2017 Armed Forces Insurance Spouse of the Year for Ft. Bragg. Not one to sit idle, you’ll usually find Evie meeting new people and finding resources in the community, trying new recipes (usually when company comes over), and planning her family's next trip.

Before I Worked for InDependent I:
Worked in corporate accounting and project management. I always volunteered to be the department event coordinator because I love planning networking and team building events!
Favorite Duty Station:
I’ve always enjoyed our duty stations, but it would be a toss-up between Ft. Lee, VA and Camp Casey, South Korea. I loved Virginia and the city of Richmond, but I loved the opportunity to live and travel in Asia, too!
I’m training for a half-marathon with my husband, so I currently run 3-4 times a week and supplement that with at-home weight training with minimal equipment, and yoga.
I don’t believe you need to sacrifice delicious food in order to be healthy. I’m all about breaking the rules, listening to your body, and using my food journey to do more rather than less.
Travel! And reading. Preferably, reading while traveling.
Favorite Healthy Snack:
Hummus and veggies. So many flavor combinations and it’s great for an on-the-go lifestyle.
Fitness Achievement Most Proud of:
Keeping up with my husband on one of our training runs!
Favorite Workout Gadget:
I LOVE the Runkeeper app personalized training programs.
Favorite Workout Song:
On a long run I listen to podcasts, audiobooks or an ice hockey game. Otherwise, you’ll find me working out to the Harlem Shake. It has a great beat and I always think of the funny Youtube videos that people have made.
Biggest Fitness Hurdle:
Running a half-marathon is a bucket list item, but I’ve never run more than 2.5 miles without stopping.
What Makes You Smile:
Going on a peaceful walk around our neighborhood. The fresh air always puts a smile on my face.
