Pam Jones hails from all over, the result of being the child of a career military officer, however, she calls Nashville, TN home. After marrying Georgia native, Jarell Jones, her life flipped on its ear. Their life together only demonstrated a principle that Mrs. Jones holds close and is represented in a quote she once heard from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a series of surprises and would not be worth taking or keeping if it were not!” She finds life is full of surprises and is more than entertaining with her husband, their children, and 12 grandchildren. She works full time as an Operations Analyst for Long Term Care Group, as a TPA, wrangling four horses, four dogs, a cat, embracing her enthusiastic Episcopalian family from St Elizabeth’s in Dahlonega, and offering support to the Sunrise Rotary Club of Dahlonega. In her spare time, Mr. and Mrs. Jones enjoy hiking on the North Georgia trails, painting with oils and traveling.
