I am a SURVIVOR of domestic violence!!! My son and I were blessed to be able to utilize Magnolia House. I’m excited to help raise money to support this wonderful organization!!! The outpouring of blessings and strength received at Magnolia House by the amazing staff helped me become a stronger woman and protector of those affected by all different types of abuse. I was raised in Ware County and graduated from Ware County High in 1994. I received an Associate Degree in Nursing, Registered Nurse, from South Georgia State College on the Waycross Campus in 1997. I received a Master’s Degree in Nursing with Family Nurse Practitioner from Georgia Southern University in 2013 with the help of the good Lord, family, and great friends. I am married to my best friend, Robin Minshew. We’re blessed to have a blended family of all boys, Jay, Chris, Luke, and Harley, and two beautiful granddaughters. I am a Nurse Practitioner with Dr. Prasanna Srinagesh specializing in Nephrology while caring for dialysis patients at Fresenius Dialysis and hospitalized patients at Memorial Satilla Health. I love spending time with my family, my New Life Church family, reading books, listening to music, and walking on the beach.
