Sheila Scruggs

Sheila (Page) 12-1-15Originally from Lynchburg, TN (By the way, Sheila makes excellent lemonade…), Sheila lives in Cookeville with husband Tim and her fuzzy “kids.”

Sheila has always wanted a career in the spotlight.

Luckily, Sheila was encouraged by her Granny who said, “A whistling woman and a crowing hen always comes to a bad end.”
