Spenser was born and raised in Snellville, and has lived in Atlanta the past six years. “[It] is a very diverse city in the sense of its residents, culture, opportunities, and activities. I love having a wide range of events and places to choose to spend time – there is something for every mood!” The three words she’d use to describe herself are: Independent, Energetic, and Compassionate.
Thank you, Spenser, for all you do for the CLD!
