The Personal Side of Jimmie

Jimmie's personal life is very special to her. She will often use quotes remembered from childhood during her Seminars, as they are more a part of her life today than when her Grandmother Huggins spoke them. And those of you that know Jimmie, already know how that she holds her Parents dear to her heart.

She loves to spend as much of her free time as possible with the man in her life, her very supportive husband, Doug, and their little resuced Bay, on the Inner Banks of NC. When she is not fishing with Doug they are either riding bikes or watching those fabulous East Coast, Belhaven Sunsets.

As for her children...

Now that both of her sons are grown men, they have a life of their own but they are still a vital part of Jimmie's life. She sees them as much as possible and has been known to drive over to see them just for one of those special hugs that only a son can give!
