Mrs. Phillips enjoys the theater and performs quite regularly on stage at CCCHS and in the past at South Jackson Civic Center.  You may have seen her in Footloose, Grease, and Arsenic and Old Lace at CCCHS or in The Miracle Worker and My Fair Lady at South Jackson Civic Center.  You may have even heard her perform her flute in the orchestra of "Nunsense" and Fiddler on the Roof.  She still performs flute or voice pieces for weddings, funerals, and other events

Mrs. Phillips has been married to Phillip Phillips II (not the American Idol winner) since 2002.  They have two daughters whose birthdays are twenty-four hours apart (April 22, 2008, and April 23, 2010).  She spends the majority of her time with her family participating in various activities -- such as cooking/baking, community events, softball, Lannom Library reading programs, and church activities.  

Mrs. Phillips also teaches at Motlow as an adjunct faculty member and pursues her passion to write in her spare time.  She is in the process of publishing her first novel and already has edited a published Christian devotional written by Andrae Crismon.
