Mrs. Landrum enjoys exploring new and different places and sampling exciting cuisine from around the world. On the weekends, you can probably catch her running on the Ridgeland multi-purpose trail, soaking up the sun by the pool, or visiting her family in her hometown of Columbus, MS. When she's not in the kitchen cooking her famous bacon and pepperoni frittata or her signature crème d'asperges, she'll be in TJ Maxx or Home Goods hunting for a designer item at a discounted price. Mrs. Landrum is married to her husband, Joshua, who is also a music teacher, and they are parents of a generic-brand Austrialian shepherd/border collie named Dory.
