Garner and her husband Trey are high school sweethearts who love all things Memphis made and local. When they are not playing with their two dogs, Peach and Krewe, they enjoy exercising outside, traveling, and have a goal to watch an MLB baseball game at all 30 stadiums across the country. They have a close group of friends and family who continually encourage and challenge them to be and give their best to others each day.
