A Wedding in the Park

Kim has family in Denmark, and she and Aaron

were introduced to the concept of ”hygge“

through that connection. The term describes a

sense of coziness, warmth, and togetherness.


We visited Denmark with my whole family a

few years ago and fell in love with hygge and

with being happy with everything you have.


—Kim Lane

BY JENNIFER STANLEY

PHOTOS BY KATI MALLORY PHOTO & DESIGN

The wedding of Kim Lane and Aaron

Duvall eschewed the overformal

in favor of simplicity. It was, in a

word, refreshing. The Conway residents

extended their own back yard, which

adjoins the Tucker Creek Trail, onto the

open greenspace behind their back fence.

This created an expanse in which they,

along with beloved friends and family,

could celebrate the night away.

Aaron, a Morrilton native, is a teacher

and basketball coach at Morrilton

High School. Kim serves as CEO of the

Conductor, a public-private partnership

6 faulkner lifestyle | june/july 2O19


with the University of Central Arkansas,

and Startup Junkie, which provides

entrepreneurial support through

consulting, mentorship, access to capital,

and maker training in a free-of-charge

Makerspace. She also founded Kim

Lane Co., through which she provides

thought leadership as a consultant for

Facebook, Inc. and serves as regional

representative for the Kauffman Foundation,

managing 30-plus chapters of an

entrepreneurial program in a five-state

region. A senior advisor for the Global

Entrepreneurship Network, she served as

U.S. delegate to the Global Entrepreneurship

Congresses in Johannesburg, South

Africa (2017); Istanbul, Turkey (2018);

and Manama, Bahrain (2019).

Their courtship was not of the

whirlwind variety. “We met in school

and bonded over our mutual love for

poetry and literature,” says Kim. The

couple dated for eight years. “We knew

we would marry someday. There was

something special about our bond, and

it continued to grow,” says Aaron. Kim’s

family is incredibly close and often

spends Saturdays together. “I always said

I only wanted to date a person if I was

excited about spending Saturdays with

them. That was sort of the ‘litmus test.’

If I genuinely wanted to bring them into

my life and family time...When I wanted

to spend Saturdays with Aaron, I knew

he was the one,” she says.

The Proposal

Avid campers, Aaron incorporated their

love of the outdoors into the proposal.

One evening while Kim was away,

Aaron took her parents to dinner. “He

had a big plan to ask for their blessing

to marry me. Little did he know, my

parents planned to tell him that night

he needed to propose! My Mom said

there was a brief lull in the conversation

toward the end of dinner, and right as

she kicked my Dad under the table,

Aaron said, ‘I need to ask you something.’

The rest is history!” says Kim.

“Our ‘place’ is Petit Jean State Park. In

college, we’d take spur-of-the-moment

camping trips after class mid-week.

We packed a small cooler, picked up

firewood, and camped under the stars.

We’d wake up early the next morning,

make coffee over the fire, and get back

to Conway in time for school by eight

in the morning.” The day of the planned

proposal, Aaron convinced Kim to

hike Petit Jean because “it was perfect

weather, and he knew the leaves would

be turning…We got in the car to go

to Little Rock with my family, or so I

thought, but he turned the other way

and drove straight to one of our favorite

Petit Jean lookouts. He proposed on top

of the mountain, and we drove back

to Conway,” she says. Their families

awaited the couple at their home with

champagne, chocolate covered strawberries,

balloons, and pictures representing

their eight-year relationship.

The Nuptials

Kim and Aaron’s wedding concept was

one of simplicity, rather, “hygge.” Kim

has family in Denmark, and she and

Aaron were introduced to the concept of

hygge through that connection. The term

faulknerlifestyle.com 7


describes a sense of coziness, warmth,

and togetherness. “We visited Denmark

with my whole family a few years ago

and fell in love with hygge and with

being happy with everything you have.”

“We both wanted an intimate wedding

in nature, so the first step was picking

a location. We, of course, decided on

our own backyard. The next step was

painting the house white,” says Aaron.

Planning for around 200 wedding

guests, the couple removed parts of

their back fence, opening their yard to

a large, grassy area along the Tucker

Creek Trail. They married under a giant

oak tree in Gatlin Park, Tucker Creek

flowing alongside them.

Kim’s twin sister Kelley served as maid

of honor, and her sister Tiffany was

matron of honor. Bridesmaids included

childhood friends Kelsey Lyle, Kelsey

Parsons, and Shelby Owens; Brittany

Duvall, Aaron’s sister-in-law; and

Melanie Mourot, his sister. Son Gabe

Duvall served as junior best man with

Aaron’s brother Kyle as best man.

Groomsmen included Charlie Mourot,

Aaron’s brother-in-law; Eric Kordsmeier,

his uncle; and Ryan Coyle, Kim’s

brother-in-law. Their beloved Oakley,

a Great Pyrenees-Lab mix, did best dog

honors and was accompanied down the

aisle by nephews Hudson Coyle and

Adler Duvall. Kim’s parents, Milton and

Cheryl Lane and Aaron’s parents, Rick

and Alma Duvall were also part of the

ceremony. Among the several out-oftown

guests was a member of Kim’s

Denmark family. Officiants were Pastor

Dan Hauser of Christ Lutheran Church

and Monsignor Jack Harris of Sacred

Heart Catholic Church. Ceremony

music was courtesy Conway Symphony

Orchestra violinist Gustavo Fernandez.

Kim conceptualized and styled the

entire ceremony and reception, and the

day included many loving, personal

details. Aaron escorted his and Kim’s

mother down the aisle, each carrying

bouquets of ranunculus flowers with

personalized letters attached from

their respective marrying children.

Kim’s grandmother, “Gweem” was the

first person she called after becoming

engaged. “She is one of my closest

confidants…and she told me I could

wear her wedding dress, an incredible

honor. I tried it on with her and my

Mom that night, but she was so

tiny when she got married the dress

wouldn’t even zip!” Gweem passed

away suddenly during wedding

planning. “Her passing was extremely

challenging, but it brought my sisters

and Mom together the day I tried on

the wedding dress I wore. I sewed

a heart-shaped piece of one of my

Grandad’s favorite ties into the lining of

the dress as an ode to them both.”

Post-ceremony, the couple made their

way down the walking trail as guests,

lined up alongside, threw bird seed.

“We walk this trail every morning with

our dog Oakley and coffee in-hand, so

that moment was special,” says Kim,

adding, “…We also love the city’s bike

share and briefly rode rented bikes,

Aaron in his tux and me in my dress,

after our portraits.”

The event featured fresh flowers, tons

of candles, and natural greenery. The

landscape’s beauty did not require much

in the way of additional accoutrements.

Kim’s bouquet, created by Ye Olde Daisy

Shoppe, included rosemary, carrots, and

“accidental” beets. “I told Aaron I wanted

radishes in my bouquet, so he could

tell me I looked ‘radishing,’ but at the

wedding we realized we’d grabbed beets

instead of radishes. He told me I looked

radishing anyway,” laughs Kim.

Their goal was to embrace the beauty

in the natural surroundings. “The

burning candles, the beautiful park,

and really, most importantly, our love

for each other and the love of everyone

there.” Mission accomplished.

The Reception

“We love to host hygge backyard

dinner parties with our closest friends

and family. When we got engaged,

we knew immediately we wanted to

have a giant, al fresco dinner party in

our backyard with tons of candles,

fresh flowers on the tables, large

wooden candle lanterns around the

backyard, and Frenchman Street-style

jazz music.”

“It was important to us to keep everything

simple. We, along with family

and close friends, spent so much time,

blood, sweat, and tears renovating our

house. Aaron, my parents, my uncle,

and I actually built the entire deck

Kim‘s bouquet, created

by Ye Olde Daisy Shoppe,

included rosemary,

carrots, and ”accidental“

beets.


I told Aaron

I wanted radishes in

my bouquet so he

could tell me I looked

’radishing,‘ but at the

wedding we realized

we‘d grabbed beets

instead of radishes. He

told me I looked radishing

anyway,


laughs Kim.

y hand, which was the dance floor

during the reception,” says Kim. Also

important was sourcing locally.

“We both love shopping and eating

local, so the more we could work with

local businesses, the better. This is

especially true since Kim works with

entrepreneurs daily,” says Aaron. “It

was special to work with friends and

business owners at our wedding. Kyle

Tabor, owner of Blue Sail Coffee, had a

coffee cart at the wedding, which was

a huge hit. He hand-made coffees for

the guests.” The couple also enlisted

the proprietors of Streetside Creperie to

surprise the bridal party with a buildyour-own

crepe bar and mimosas while

getting ready for the ceremony.

Aaron and Kim also appreciate the

art of letter writing and wanted to

incorporate it into their day. “My sister

Kelley is a designer who owns Kelley

Lane Design. She made wedding

invitations that were actually letters

from us to our guests,” says Kim.

Kelley’s work was utilized throughout

the reception as well. “I was also

excited to work with the Conductor

team in the Makerspace…Using the

laser engraver, we created wooden

letters detailing the impact our guests

have had on our lives and included

them at each place setting.”

Aaron and Kim also took a simple, local

approach to the flora for their big day.

“There’s so much beauty in simplicity,

and weddings can easily become

extremely overdone and so expensive.

For my florals, I wanted something

different but wasn’t sure what avenue I

wanted to take. Then, I stumbled upon

Felder Farms, a Little Rock urban farm.”

Kim contacted the owner, Andrea Wills,

who invited them to visit her farm. “We

saw our flowers while they were still

growing! She seriously felt like a close

friend by the wedding and provided us

with tons of absolutely beautiful, fresh,

local flowers,” says Kim.

Christina Basham at Boulevard Bread

Company was “a complete Godsend.

She met with Aaron and me multiple

times and had a huge part in making

the sit-down, family-style dinner a

reality.” Aaron and Kim essentially

expanded their typical dinner party

to accommodate a larger number of

guests. “Christina did an incredible

job of making that dream come true,

bringing in over 20 servers…and

cooking in our kitchen most of the

afternoon.” As night drew close, café

lights illuminated the back yard, the

fire pit roared, and guests enjoyed table

wine and cake with fresh strawberries.

“It was the most hygge night of our

lives,” says Kim happily.

Jeremy Shrader Band provided the

reception music. “They are outstanding.

People felt like they were in a movie.

10 faulkner lifestyle | june/july 2O19


Says Kim, “Aaron and I have always

been in sync. I know this sounds crazy,

but I always say it’s like our hearts

are tethered. We’ve been together for

nearly a decade. People used to tell us

marriage is hard work, but we feel like

marriage is the most wonderful thing

ever. Sometimes life is challenging, but

being together makes the hard times so

much more manageable. We’re always

on each other’s team.”

It was Gatsby-esque – the perfect mix

of swing music and jazz, which is

exactly what we were looking for.” Kati

Mallory Photography took the stunning

photographs, and UCA graduate and

former Conductor contributor Jack

Evans served as videographer.

With the party right in the couple’s

back yard, there was no specific end

time, lending to the casual ambiance.

“When it got late, we were still drinking

the table wine and Lost 40 beer, sitting

around the fire pit, dancing to our

friends and family singing songs and

playing acoustic guitar, and just letting

it all soak in…It was just beautiful.”

Aaron and Kim cite their guests’

speeches as favorite moments from

their reception. Specifically, that of

Aaron’s 10-year-old son, Gabe. “I don’t

think there was a dry eye when he

finished.” Kim’s sisters, her father, and

even her mother, who abhors public

speaking, all spoke words of celebration

over the couple, as did Aaron’s brother.

Kim and Aaron steadfastly budgeted

during their wedding preparation. “It’s

easy to get so caught up in planning

you lose the meaning behind the day,

which is celebrating your lifelong love.

Bearing that in mind, I researched to

ensure our purchases were strategic,

and we weren’t inadvertently spending

tens of thousands of dollars on things

that would be gone in one night. For

starters, that seems like a major waste of

money. Secondly, I’ve always loved the

phrase ‘I want a marriage more beautiful

than my wedding,’ which I think sums

it up,” says Kim. “Your wedding is the

happiest day of your life. Don’t stress

about it. A few things went totally

wrong with the day, but no one noticed,

and we didn’t care. We were married at

that point,” adds Aaron.

For the Love of Conway

The short drive from Conway Christian to Hendrix College

Three top Conway Christian High School

athletes will get to showcase their talent

locally in Conway having committed to

Hendrix College. Both Conway Christian and

Hendrix College share a rich history of academic

and athletic accomplishments and are taking

steps to showcase those accomplishments with

some of Conway’s own locally-grown talent. All

three athletes stated that their love of Conway

and staying local was a factor in their decisions.

Tyler Williams, a distinguished honor

graduate of CCHS with a GPA of 3.90, has

committed to play basketball for the Hendrix

Warriors. Tyler has attended Conway Christian

since the 3rd grade and was recognized this year

with All-Conference Basketball Honors for the

CCHS Eagles averaging 11 points, 9 rebounds

and 3 assists a game. Tyler is the son of Ryan

and Wendy Williams.

Bennett Ellis, a distinguished honor graduate

of CCHS with a GPA of 4.13, has committed

to play football for Hendrix College as a kicker.

Bennett first played football locally for the

Conway Optimist Club on the Saints team.

He has attended Conway Christian since the

5th grade and has kicked for Conway Christian

throughout junior high and high school with

a punting average of 47 yards, a long-distance

field goal record of 53 yards with an overall

92% of place kicks made. Bennett received

All-Conference Football Honors winning two

Conference Championships. Bennett is the son

of Ladd and Ashley Ellis.

Jacob Wood has attended Conway Christian

for the past 15 years. He will graduate as a

distinguished honor graduate with a GPA of

4.11. Jacob began his Conway football career

playing Conway Optimist Club Football. He

played for the Charger’s, winning a Super

Bowl Championship in 2012. During Jacob’s

high school career as Quarterback, Jacob

accrued 9,646 yards passing/throwing and

143 touchdowns, winning two Conference

Championships. Jacob was 3X All-Conference

and 2X All-State and will play in the All-Star

Football Game this summer at UCA. Jacob has

committed to continue his career as quarterback

for the Hendrix Football Team. Jacob is the son

of Mark and Ginger Wood.

All three of these Conway graduates are

lifelong friends and multi-sport athletes having

played some kind of ball together from backto-back

undefeated basketball championships

in elementary school to winning conference

championships in football and also in baseball

in high school.

Isaac D. Sims

Director of Community Development & Planning

Conway Development Corporation

Conway Area Chamber of Commerce

Where are you from and where did you get your education? Born in

Orlando, Florida and raised in Little Rock. My high school education was primarily

homeschooling and pre-college classes, and earned my degree in Geography from UCA.

What do you love most about Faulkner County? Currently my wife and

I live downtown near our favorite restaurant. That in itself is a huge win. We eat

there quite a bit, and just down the street is our bank, a place to eat chips and queso,

and a coffee shop where we play board games sometimes. Downtown Conway

is awesome. I have loved the city since my freshman orientation at UCA. Now

that I get to see what goes on behind the scenes in making Conway even better, I

appreciate the community-first mindset that its leaders and citizens have. I consider

myself blessed to be able to be a part of it all.

To what do you attribute your success? In a word, humility. In order to succeed

in the classroom, you have to admit confusion or lack of understanding that can be

embarrassing. I had to struggle through many classes both in high school and college,

and I quickly learned that a prideful mindset isn’t worthy of good grades or quality

workmanship. Asking for forgiveness from friends is humbling, but it is the most

healthy and healing thing you can do. Humility can also be kind of courageous, too, so I

try to make a practice of being humble while still being earnest and hardworking.

Any hobbies you want to share? I have explored Conway a lot this year via

running, and it’s my new favorite activity. I am a growing cinephile (I just watched

Blues Brothers for the first time recently and loved it), and I try to watch as many

films as I can. I’m trying to find more ways to support local film efforts in Conway

and Arkansas. My favorite band is The National, they just released a new album that

I have on repeat. I also sing and play guitar, I hope to do that in my church soon.

Tell us about your family. I’ve been married to my wife, Jessica for almost a year

and a half. She’s the most beautiful woman in the world, and the best person I know. I

have four sisters and two brothers, and I’m fourth-born, so right in the middle. They are

extraordinary and talented with careers in finance tech, law, healthcare, and marketing.

My youngest sister just finished her freshman year of college, and my youngest brother

just recently surpassed me in height. He’s 14 and 6’2. I have a pseudo-brother in the

military who is close enough to consider family. My father is a financial planner and

attorney, and my mom homeschooled each of my siblings. Both are incredible people.

Who was your biggest life influence? My parents, growing up. Now, it is my

gorgeous wife, Jessica. We’ve been married for about a year and a half, and my admiration

for her grows each day. She got her first job teaching in the middle of this school

year, and based on the stories I have heard her relay to me, she could not be doing a

better job. Those 7-8th graders love her to death. I see her filled with so much joy as

she teaches about World War II, seeing their minds grow and learn. It’s been such a fun

season for both of us, and her hard work and joy are huge inspirations for me.

Who inspired your career path? Going into college, I had zero expectations or

ideas for my future career. Through a conversation with my friend, Ben Lykins, I was

inspired to work toward a degree in geography and geographic information systems

(GIS) to become an urban planner. I’m fairly certain that everything about my life

as it is now was determined by that conversation in his house my freshman year.

Along the way to earning my degree, I was further inspired by the guy who would

become my boss, Brad Lacy, in a visiting lecture about economic development. I am

extremely blessed and fortunate.

Marcus Elliott

Conway Regional Health System,

Director of Corporate Health Services

Where are you from and where did you get your education?

I was born and raised in Little Rock. I graduated from Little

Rock Central High School. I graduated college from the University

of Arkansas with a BSBA degree.

What brought you to Faulkner County? CRHS CEO Matt

Troup and I attended church together. I knew the caliber of man that

he was and jumped at the opportunity to join an organization led by

him. Meeting the other CRHS leaders and employees sealed it.

What inspired your career path? As an ordained minister I

discovered that “ministry,” by definition means meeting the need,

personally gives me joy and energy. Supporting CRHS providers

and helping employers/employees is an opportunity to help

minister to more of God’s people.

What do you love most about Faulkner County? I love

the people I get a chance to meet and learn from. These are highly

successful and down to earth people.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? I love traveling,

experiencing new foods and cultures.

How are you involved in your community? In what ways

do you or your company help the community? Conway

Regional helps the community in numerous ways. A recent

example: We held a VIP Colonoscopy Screening Event for eight

prominent leaders in Faulkner County including our CE0, Matt

Troup. The participants actually went through the colonoscopy

procedure and allowed us to make a PSA based on their experiences.

The PSA will encourage people to have colonoscopies.

Are you involved in any professional organizations?

Conway Area Leadership Institute (C.A.L.I).

Tell us about your family. My oldest daughter, Porchia,

just graduated with the BSN degree in Nursing and works as a

registered nurse in CVICU with CHI-St. Vincent. My youngest

daughter, Tyler, just finished her second year at Bowen Law

School. My son, Ross Marcus, will be attending Southern Methodist

University in the Lyle Engineering program this fall. Ramona

and I will be married 30 years on December 16.

What does the future hold for you in Faulkner County?

Thoughtful growth under skilled leadership and management.

A prosperous, inclusive, loving community.

Who was your biggest life influence? My parents. Also,

every coach I played for. Especially high school coaches: Clyde

Horton and Bernie Cox of Little Rock Central High.

Who inspired your career path? My father, The Right

Reverend Marcus Hurkus Elliott, III. Deceased.

Christopher Hervey

Hervey Insurance Agency, Risk Advisor

Where are you from and where did you get

your education? I am from Conway, AR and I

graduated from Conway High School, as well as the

University of Central Arkansas (BA in Finance).

How are you involved in your community? I

am currently contributing to my community through

my participation in the Conway Morning Rotary Club,

serving on the Board for City of Hope Outreach, as well

as, being a member of the Conway Toastmasters.

Hervey Insurance Agency has assisted the community

through giving back to the Renewal Ranch, Y.E.S.

program (group of young ladies), in addition to the

Distinguished Gentleman’s Club held at Marguerite

Vann Elementary where a group of young men take

part in becoming leaders for the next generation.

Tell us about your family. I have been married to

my beautiful wife Yolanda Hervey for 15 years and

we have been blessed with a lovely daughter (Alexis

Hervey) who resides in Texas.

If you have one piece of advice for someone

just starting out, what would it be? Do your

homework and find yourself a good mentor, but first

and foremost put God first.

Favorite quote? “If there is no struggle, there is no

progress.” Frederick Douglass

Who was your biggest life influence? My biggest

life influencers are my parents Dr. Lloyd and Verna

Hervey. The foundation they provided for my brother

(Lloyd II) and sister (Stephanie) as well as myself is

invaluable and it keeps us grounded.

My desire is to continue to exemplify a positive

influence for young people within our community.

Young people need something to hope for and I hope

my small contribution encourages some young person

to keep going.

As far as my career, I would have to say John Kelley

inspired my career path into the Financial Services

industry. His expertise as a Certified Financial Planner

really piqued my interest into pursuing a career in

Insurance and Retirement Planning.

Anthony Manning, MD

Conway Regional Surgical Associates

General Surgeon

Where are you from and where did you get your

education? Malvern, Arkansas. Undergrad: University of Central

Arkansas, Medical School: University of Arkansas for Medical

Sciences, and Residency at Scott & White Memorial Hospital,

General Surgery

What brought you to Faulkner County? I have a lot of ties to

Conway. Conway is where I met my wife, Hanna, while we were

both undergraduates at UCA. For a year, I worked as an assistant

for the General Surgeons that are now my partners. Simply put,

moving back to Conway felt natural, like moving home.

To what do you attribute your success? The people around

me. Whether it was my parents in high school and college, my

wife in medical school and residency, or my mentors and friends

throughout, I have had incredible people in my corner from the very

beginning. It has required hard work from me, no doubt, but my

success, like most peoples’, has certainly been a team effort.

Tell us about your family. I have been married to my beautiful

wife, Hanna, for almost 11 years. Getting through medical school

and residency simply would not have been possible without her.

She has worked in Education since graduating from UCA in 2009.

We have two sons, Cambpell (6) who is finishing Kindergarten this

spring, and Knox (4).

What does the future hold for you in Faulkner County?

My goal is to raise our children here and start and finish my career

with Conway Regional Surgical Associates, many years from now.

Additionally, I want to add new service lines, including bariatric (or

weight loss) surgery, and continue to enhance the care provided by

and through the Conway Regional Health System.

Favorite quote? “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who

points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds

could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is

actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and

blood; who strive valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and

again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but

who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms,

the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who

know neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

Who inspired your career path? One of the partners who

recently retired from our practice, Dr. Homer Fleisher, is the man

who made me want to be a surgeon. I was on the path for medicine,

but was unsure of what specialty I would pursue. I met Dr. Fleisher

through his internship program with Junior/Senior UCA students.

Through the program, as well as working as his and his partners’

assistant, it became evident that surgery was my calling, and it paved

the way for me to join the practice when I finished training.

minimpore molorerum dolorerunt. To what do you attribute your success?

My business has been successful for two main reasons.

First, because of the support shown me from the great

people of Greenbrier and Faulkner County. Secondly,

because of the hard work and dedication of my

wonderful staff. With their help I am able to provide

the top notch, excellent care people have come to

expect at Deal Family Dental.

Are you involved in any professional organizations?

I am a Diplomate of the Facial Beauty Institute,

a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, the

International Association for Orthodontics, and the

American Orthodontic Society.

Tell us about your family. I live in Greenbrier with

my two wonderful boys, Thompson who is 13 years

old, and Gavin who is 11. We enjoy football, basketball

and golf.

Favorite quote? “Find something you love to do, and

you will never work a day in your life.”

Who was your biggest life influence? Influences…

it’s plural in my case. Most definitely my parents, Vern

and Sandra Deal. They have taught me more than I

can list in this short piece. They placed an emphasis on

education and accountability, and it has served me well

my entire life. I am very thankful for their support and

encouragement.

Who inspired your career path? The biggest

influence on the direction of my career was my mentor,

Dr. Steve Galella. He awoke my mind and shined a

bright light on so many aspects of dentistry that most

dentists don’t get the opportunity to learn from, much

less practice. He is a brilliant practitioner, and I thank

him for his teachings and his support.

Beau Wilcox

Attorney

Where are you from and where did you get your

education? Conway native and lifelong (41+ years)

resident; Conway High ‘95, Hendrix College (B.A., English)

‘99, UALR William H. Bowen School of Law (J.D., with

honors), ‘06

What brought you to Faulkner County? Having been

in Conway my whole life, being educated and raised here

and having my own family here, my connection to home is

deep and I love being in a growing community that is both

familiar and ever-evolving.

What do you love most about working/living in

Faulkner County? Interacting with “my people.” I obviously

find myself involved in disputes between people but

so much of what we do in this practice is solution-oriented

— even in adversarial situations, people often do not realize

that this is a profession geared toward resolving problems

rather than instigating them.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? I am a pop

culture junkie — love movies, music, and media in general.

Pretty much a nerd, but I love my Razorbacks, Star Wars,

Marvel, and, of course, the incomparable, honeyed vocals

of Travis Tritt.

How are you involved in your community? I have

taken a slight hiatus from service in community organizations

to focus on my practice, but I have served on the

Conway Public School Foundation Board of Directors and

spent my last two years serving as Chairman. I served four

years on the United Way board of directors, served on the

Faulkner County Single Parent Scholarship fund board, and

Big Brothers/Big Sisters in the past. Now I try to focus on

making contributions of time and money in doing some pro

bono work for clients and continuing to support as many of

our wonderful local social benefit and welfare programs in

this community.

Tell us about your family. Married 18+ years to former

Shannon Skaggs of Corning, AR, a 1999 graduate of UCA

and 2000 master’s degree recipient from UCA. Two sons,

Graham (13) and Hayes (turns 10 in July)

Any advice for someone just starting out? Be

confident in your skills and yourself, but be cautious as

well. Do not bite off more than you can chew, as the adage

goes, and you can be successful.

Favorite quote? “Pain don’t hurt,” Dalton (Patrick

Swayze) in the groundbreaking 1989 film “Road House.”

Who was your biggest life influence? Bill Nutter, my

maternal grandfather—the archetype of a role model in

both word and deed.

Jimmy D. Warren II

Communication/Special Event Coordinator

Pulaski County Government-Dept of Youth Services

Occupation: By day I spend my time as a Communication/Special Event

Coordinator for Pulaski County Government-Department of Youth Services. Other

than that, I spend my time as a community builder here in Conway. I like to connect

people with the resources needed to pursue their goals.

Where are you from and where did you get your education? I’m

originally from Crossett, AR. I got both my undergraduate and master’s degree

from Arkansas Tech. Dabbled in law school at UALR Bowen School of Law but

didn’t finish.

What brought you to Faulkner County? We moved to Conway after

Hewlett-Packard opened here. I had originally been working out of their Little Rock

office, but my daughter was about to begin kindergarten and everyone knows

Conway has one of the best school districts. It made that move a no brainer.

How did you get your idea or concept for your career? Well, just

the need for young minority professionals to be showcased in the city. I think

sometimes our demographic is overlooked and people sometimes fail to realize that

this specific group of individuals needs and deserves to have a seat at the table. Not

to mention within this group is a great opportunity for economic development.

What do you love most about Faulkner County? The sense of community.

Generally everyone has a good heart, and people here really care and are

open to help.

To what do you attribute your success? To God 1st, the amazing support

system of my family, and the community. Being able to reach out to the

influencers in the community about a problem and their response is an amazing

testament to the commitment to the upbringing of Conway.

How are you involved in your community? I work a lot with organizations

to bring awareness of diversity issues in the community. I’m thankful for partners

like Conductor, Simmons Bank, and the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce

who realize that diversity is not just a check in the box but an amazing value in

their organizations.

Tell us about your family. My wife, Shakira is the rock of our family and

obviously where the abundance of intelligence and beauty comes from in our

daughters, Amaya and Alivia

What's the best advice you can give to someone? It's important that

we constantly treat the people we meet with respect and compassion. I make

it no secret that a random chance encounter with a stranger literally saved my

life by donating me her kidney. I'm truly forever grateful to Samantha M. You

honestly never know the angels you have conversations with daily.

Any advice for someone just starting out? Find your peace and never

lose it. Find that one person, or place that you can go to when times are rough

and cultivate it. On the path to success its important that you take care of your

mental health. Whatever brings you peace in the storm, quickly find it and

protect it. There will be days that you need it.

Who inspired your career path? The 44th President of the United States,

Barack Obama. For the first time I was able to see someone who looks like me,

shares the same interests as me, and has a family that looks like mine change

the world. I had the opportunity to work for his office in D.C. and witness

first-hand history in the making.

What do you love most about working and living in

It’s a wonderful, business-minded, progressive community with

Faulkner County.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? I enjoy outdoor

activities, especially deer and duck hunting in the fall, and

turkey hunting in the spring. I belong to a hunting club in south

James Flanagin (Jimmy)

Flanagin Dental Services

Where are you from and where did you get your

education? Born in Conway a half century ago (I just

turned 50).

What brought you to Faulkner County? I am a

third generation dentist — my grandfather came here

from Arkadelphia almost 100 years ago. Conway being

a college town was an initial attraction. My dad always

remarked how this area has a lot of quality people living

here, and I think that remains true as it continues to

attract new folks.

To what do you attribute your success? The work

ethic my dad modeled for me as I grew up is a key part of

my success.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? I enjoy

long walks around town, hiking and rock hounding. I pick

up cool rocks wherever I travel.

How are you involved in your community? We

support UCA, especially athletics, its Honors College and

the Shakespeare Theatre. ADA ASDA Chamber.

Tell us about your family. I have a wonderful wife

who is an awesome mom to our 5 kids. Next year will be

our epic school year with our oldest being a senior and

our youngest starting kindergarten at St.Joseph.

What do you see changing in your industry?

Going forward, we are entering the field of laser dentistry.

Lasers were first applied to dental treatment about the

time I started dental school. The technology is now

maturing and the possibilities are exciting. As an example,

after a traditional filling, we can change the settings and

use the laser to stop your snoring. It’s fascinating.

Favorite quote? “Don’t let setbacks and mistakes

define or defeat you.” I like to make up imaginary bumper

stickers. Right now my bumper sticker would say

“cultivate the fruits of the spirit.”

Who was your biggest life influence? After my

mother, I would have to say Dr. Norb Schedler of the

UCA Honors College was the biggest influence in my

life. I still reference him on a daily basis. My father and

grandad inspired my career path.

John Simone

Bank of England

Mortgage Banker

Where did you grow up and get your education?

I was born in New Jersey and moved to Greenbrier in

1996. I graduated from Greenbrier High School.

What brought you to Faulkner County? When I

got in the mortgage business I was located in Little Rock

and quickly knew I was in the wrong county. I have too

many friends and family here in Faulkner County to be

working anywhere else.

What do you love most about working/living in

Faulkner County? I’ve spent the majority of my life in

Faulkner County, so it seems fitting that I stay close and

help out the community that I call home.

To what do you attribute your success? I attribute

my success to someone who took a leap of faith and

believed in me and my drive for success that I have today.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? My

family and I spent lots of weekends at the baseball fields

watching our son play or just enjoying the game.

Tell us about your family. My beautiful wife, LaDona is

co-owner of Bleacher Bling. They design and sell custom

shirts for any need or want that you might have. We have

two wonderful children, Mason, 13, who loves to play

sports and do anything in the outdoors, and Mattie, 11

who loves to play volleyball and take selfies...

What does the future hold for you in Faulkner

County? I really believe I will spend the rest of my life

in this county. My wife, LaDona was born and raised in

Greenbrier and I do not think I will ever be able to move

her out of there and that is fine by me! The schools are

great, and our children like it here.

Any advice for someone just starting out? If I was

to give any advice to anyone who wants to go into the

mortgage business, I would say that you are not going

to have an easy road. Rules and regulations change

nearly every day and you must keep up with them. So

many people get told they cannot get a home loan, but

when they actually talk to the right person they will

more than likely fit into some sort of program to help

them get into a home.

Jeff Craig, MD

Central Arkansas Pediatrics

Pediatrician and Owner

Where are you from and where did you get your education?

I was born in Pine Bluff, and except for a couple of years when we lived

in Star City, I grew up in Gould. An avid Razorback fan, the University

of Arkansas was an easy choice for me. I obtained a Bachelor of Science

in Zoology and a Master of Science in Microbiology at Fayetteville.

I attended the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences where I

obtained my M.D. degree, and then I completed my Residency in

Pediatrics at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

What brought you to Faulkner County? We had one child and

one on the way at the completion of residency, so we were looking

for a family oriented community and one with great schools. Conway

afforded both of those amenities, plus there are great churches here

and we wanted to plant roots both in the community and a church. We

have not been disappointed in our choice to move here. Our 3 kids are

Wampus Cat alums, and received an excellent education.

What do you love most about Faulkner County? The people

and the many opportunities are what make Faulkner County home. It’s

a small town feel but with a lot of options for dining, recreation and it’s

an easy drive to the Little Rock Airport. I’ve been taking care of kids in

Faulkner County for about 23 years now, and I’ve gotten to watch them

grow up, have kids of their own and now I see some of their kids!

To what do you attribute your success? Hard work. My dad set

that example for me. There is no substitute.

Any hobbies you want to share? I love working in the yard. It’s

something I did growing up and I love to be outside. Now that we have

4 West Highland White Terriers, spending time in the yard with them,

or going on long walks with the dogs is a great way for me to relax.

Tell us about your family. My wife of 25 years, Dr. Sher Craig, is

my partner both in life and in the business. She is also a Pediatrician.

We have 3 children: Laura, who graduated from UCA Honors College

in 2017, will move to the LA area this summer to pursue a Masters

in Scriptwriting and Production for Television; Daughter Bailey just

graduated from Baylor University and plans to work for the United

Nations in New York following grad school; and our youngest, Andrew,

is a junior at UCA with his sights set on joining the FBI.

What does the future hold for you here? This is home—I

expect to live here the rest of my life. I will continue working as long

as possible. I enjoy holding those babies too much to even think about

retiring.

Who was your biggest life influence? My parents. They both

worked hard and taught us to maintain our integrity and to treat others

the way we want to be treated. My dad was away from home a lot

with his job, and I spent many hours in the kitchen helping my mom,

and thanks to her, I’m a pretty good cook!

Who inspired your career path? It sounds crazy, but I’ve known

since I was about 4 or 5 that I wanted to be a Pediatrician. My local

family doctor growing up encouraged me to never give up on that goal.

County area. With all the opportunities available I plan to work for the

citizens of this area for many years to come.

Any advice for someone just starting out? Learn your industry

well, work as hard as you can, be honest, and give more than you take.

Favorite quote. “What goes around comes around,” and Luke 6:31

31: Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Who was your biggest life influence? First and foremost, Jesus

Christ and the direction my life has taken by following him. But I can’t

answer this question without including my mother. I lost my father at

a young age and for many years if was just my mom and me. She kept

us in church and kept our faith strong. She always taught me to do the

right thing in life. She shaped and molded me into the man I am today.

Who inspired your career path? My uncle, Al McCorkle. He was

a legend in the construction industry and when I first got started he

guided me. I can only hope to be half the man he was in this business.

And even to this day he doesn’t hesitate to tell me how it was done in

the old days.

Financial Advisor

Where are you from and where did you get your

education? I am originally from Texarkana, AR and

received my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the

University of Central Arkansas.

What brought you to Faulkner County? Living here

during the years I was enrolled at UCA pretty much made

Conway home to me. When the financial planning firm I

work for decided to open an office in Conway four years

ago, I was one of the first ones to want to be a part of it.

I have known for a while that this community is where I

wanted to plant roots and raise a family someday.

What do you love most about working/living in

Faulkner County? Definitely the people. This community

is unique in that the people here make decisions based on

the needs of the community as a whole and not just to

better themselves.

Do you have hobbies you want to share? Duck

hunting and fishing are my favorite hobbies. Attempting to

improve my golf game is a close third.

How are you involved in your community? I am a

board member of Young Alumni Association at UCA. Our

group organizes events for younger Alumni from UCA

and has helped grow membership among our most recent

graduates. I am also currently involved in the Conway Area

Leadership Institute class of 2019.

Are you involved in any professional organizations?

I am a qualifying member of The Million Dollar Round

Table, The Premier Association of Financial Professionals.

As Faulkner County grows we remain connected by

our strong relationships across the county. We share each

other’s successes and each other’s sorrows. When troubles

To what do you attribute your success? My life

motto is “Work hard. Love people,” principles I learned

from my family. Growing up I saw my family working

doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and is most often created when

people do what they love for the people and community

that they love.

What are some of your hobbies? While reading

is the hobby that I do most frequently, my favorite

hobby is to travel with with friends and family. Mission

work in Latin America is how I learned Spanish, and I

studied church history in Turkey. I have been to fourteen

countries and many of the states. Later this summer I will

be taking my kids on their first mission trip to Honduras

and Nicaragua. I would love to travel to Africa and eastern

Asia at some point in the future.

Tell us about your family. Xochilt and I have been

married for nearly ten years. We have three children with

very different personalities. Samantha (7.5) my oldest is

analytical and literal. Selena (6),my middle child, is the

free spirit in the family. Sebastian (2),at this point is pretty

easy going, but with his two older sisters and the parents

that he’s been given there isn’t much choice.

What does the future hold for you in Faulkner

County? My heart is set to serve Faulkner County

whether that’s publicly, philanthropically, or with

business. My family has been here for many generations,

and this is where I plan to stay.

Charles E. (Ed) Clawson, Jr.

Circuit Judge

Occupation: Circuit Judge in the 3rd Division of the 20th Judicial District,

comprised of Faulkner, Van Buren, and Searcy Counties.

Where are you from and where did you get your education? I

was born in Camden and family moved to Conway in 1959. I graduated from

Conway High School in 1970, Hendrix College in 1974, and the UALR Law

School in 1978. I have been licensed to practice law for more than 40 years.

What brought you to Faulkner County? The people. We are a community

that is growing, with excellent schools and resources that make it a good

place to live and raise a family. The people have always made it great.

How are you involved in your community? I served as president of

the Haven Board, and for more than 20 years I have served on the Faulkner

County Fair Parade Committee. My family has been members of the Second

Baptist Church for almost 60 years. I was the president of the Conway Athletic

Booster Club. I am a member of the Arkansas Bar Association, and a member

of the Arkansas Judicial Counsel and serve as president elect to take office as

President in October of this year. I am also a member of the National Drug

Association of Drug Court Professionals.

Tell us about your family. I have been married to the former Donna Blythe

for more than 46 years. She is retired from teaching in the Conway Public

Schools and currently has a business, DBC Mediation. She is also deeply

involved in animal welfare and the Friends of the Faulkner County Animal

Shelter. We have three sons: Conway City Attorney Chuck and his wife,

Shawn; Spencer and his fiancee, Marilyn Boswell; and Grant and his wife,

Jessica. We have seven grandchildren — 2 girls and 5 boys. We also have a

Yorkie named Ted, and an English Bulldog named Winnie.

What does the future hold for you in Faulkner County? I certainly

hope that I will have the opportunity to continue to serve the citizens as a

District Judge subject to the March primary. At the end of this term as Circuit

Judge I will have been on the bench for over 25 years, having heard all types

of cases, but I see the District Court as a position in which I can continue to

serve my community for as long as the citizens will let me. I also see Faulkner

County as a place to retire and enjoy my life with family and friends.

Any advice for someone just starting out? Set goals and make a plan

to reach those goals. I have been the beneficiary of innumerable opportunities

and was blessed to have the support of parents and a wife who let me pursue

those opportunities to achieve my goals. Be ready with the skills and determination

to take on any opportunity which will help you obtain your goal.

Who was your biggest life influence? My parents. After my dad left

the service in 1946 he began operating service stations in South Arkansas. We

moved to Conway in 1959 and he continued in that line of work and eventually

expanded into the restaurant business. He and my mother operated Clawson’s

Truck Stop for more than 30 years. They came to Conway with a dream of a

better life and worked hard to make a better life for my brother, Greg my sister,

Kay and myself. They showed me a strong work ethic and to be honest and deal

with people the way you would want to be treated.

Who inspired you to go into your profession? My mother. Before she

and dad married and for a while thereafter she worked for a lawyer in Smackover,

Arkansas. She would often talk about what a great person he was and how

she admired what he was able to do for the people he represented. On some level

that became an inspiration for my final decision to pursue law as a profession.

Updates Actually


I gave Beth a large

amount of creative

license on this project. I

had some thoughts but

relied on her to bring

concepts to the table.

Once we got going,

she figured out what

I liked and didn‘t like.


—Dr. Lauren Nolen

BY: JENNIFER STANLEY

PHOTOS BY C. NEUMANN - NEUMAN IMAGING

AND BRANDY STRAIN-DAYER

The Conway home of Dr. Lauren

Nolen exudes both comfort and

sophistication, a rare feat made

possible by her collaboration with local

designer Beth Reed of Design Actually.

Lauren is an obstetrician/gynecologist

and partner at Conway OB/GYN. She is

married to Chase Bender, and they have

a 15-month old daughter, Greer. Chase is

a consultant in the energy sector.

The couple purchased their home, which

was built in 1991, three years ago. The

residence totals 4520 square feet and

has four bedrooms, three full baths, and

two half-baths. Lauren and Chase were

attracted to the established neighborhood

and its trees. “The proximity to the

hospital also helped,” adds Lauren.

Lauren engaged Beth when tackling the

home’s design needs. “I stumbled upon

her Facebook page and looked at photos

of her previous work. After a consultation

I decided she was the woman for

the job,” says Lauren.

Rather than starting the venture with

preconceived ideas, Lauren trusted

Beth’s expertise and eye. “I gave Beth a

large amount of creative license on this

project. I had some thoughts but relied

on her to bring concepts to the table.

Once we got going, she figured out

what I liked and didn’t like. From there,

she created a vision, and we tailored it

together one piece at a time. It was so

much fun!” says Lauren.

“I feel like my clients see my style and

come to me because they like it and

trust I can put my spin on their existing

furniture. For example, in the beginning

Lauren requested the farmhouse ‘Joanna

44 faulkner lifestyle | june/july 2O19


Gaines’ look. Once we dove into other

options, she saw we could incorporate

some of those farmhouse touches by

whitewashing her fabulous arched brick

in the kitchen to soften the look, for

example,” says Beth.

They began with the lighting and

transitioned to concentrate on the

main living areas. All interior paint was

updated to Sherwin Williams Loggia.

New lighting was added in the kitchen,

including a pendant light over the sink

and large lantern pendants with minimal

frames and exposed bulbs over the bar/

island. As mentioned, Beth whitewashed

the brick archway, which immediately

faulknerlifestyle.com 45


modernized the space. Beth also added

new décor and purchased the new

barstools placed around the island.

The dining room was completely

transformed into a warm, inviting

space. “I knew we needed to make a

big change in the drab, brown dining

room and get rid of the heavily textured

walls. It all started with the navy-blue

fabric for the custom drapery, and

once I found the perfect textured wool

rug with oversized tassels, I knew it

would draw people into the room.

The star of the room is definitely the

large-scale, patterned navy blue and

white wallpaper. The style is balanced

by the farmhouse table and caned back

dining chairs that were custom covered

in performance fabric,” says Beth. The

room also features new cabinets and

updated the décor items.

Entering the foyer, the eye is drawn

to the gorgeous chandelier and the

custom-made table. Also highlighted

in the entryway is a beautiful painting

commissioned by artist V. Noe. The

living room area is at once elegant and

inviting and includes new furniture,

decor, and artwork. “Blues and greens

tend to show up in the majority of my

pallets. I think it is important to pull in

other colors as accents by sprinkling

them around the room. First, your

eye may notice the bold yellow lamp

on the side table, then it may bounce

to the yellow of the glass vases on

the fireplace mantel and finally to the

yellow in the art pieces,” says Beth.

Lauren and Beth also commissioned V.

Noe to create four breathtaking pieces

for the living room. “One particular

piece of art commissioned is a painting

of where Chase and I got married,

Cheesman Park in Denver, Colorado,”

shares Lauren.

Lauren says she absolutely hopes to

work with Beth on future projects,

adding, “I cannot stress enough how

awesome Beth has been to work with.

She has functioned around my crazy

work schedule, has always kept the

budget in mind, and has taken any ideas

I had and expounded on them to make

them better than I could have imagined.”

who want to live well by turning their

Pinterest dreams into a reality, and we

curate a design vision for their entire

home. Listening to our client’s needs and

cultivating a sense of style, we help weave

a seamless look throughout, while realizing

new ways to live within the home.

My advice would be to stop the Pinning

and let us take over, so your home can be

classic versus trendy,” says Beth.

Beth earned her Bachelor’s Degree in

Interior Design from the University of

Central Arkansas in 2005 and is an allied

member of the American Society of

Interior Designers as well as a member

of the Interior Design Society. We had an

opportunity to ask Beth a few questions

about her work.

Describe your first project:

A: Honestly, I can’t remember the first.

However, my favorite project during the

beginning of my career would be The

Toggery, a children’s boutique in Little

Rock’s Pleasant Ridge Town Center. I

was honored to win my first ASID design

award for the funky and whimsical

colors and patterns that were used. It

was then that I found my style.

What do you consider your biggest

professional accomplishment?

A: My most proud professional accomplishment

would be starting my own

interior design company. It only seemed

logical since I love to pull together

flooring, lighting, furniture, and accessories

so much. I may as well help others

fall in love with their own home again.

What project types do you typically

pursue?

A: Our design team takes on a variety of

projects, each unique in size, scope, and

style with an emphasis on whole-home

or whole-room designs, including new

construction, renovation, furnishing, and

interior styling. Our website has a variety

of services to select from, and all projects

begin with a consultation.

Each project is unique because it

reflects the personal style of our clients.

Collaborations with local artisans and

craftsmen add exclusivity and luxury to

every project. We provide direction and

guidance during the entire process.

What are you known for in the

industry? What is your personal

aesthetic?

A: I would say my design aesthetic is

to create classic, transitional, and smart

spaces for busy professionals who want

to make good investments. Smart shows

up in the fibers used in area rugs, fabrics

on the chairs, and topical treatments that

can be applied to fabrics or rugs that are

not inherently stain resistant. Another

way to be smart is by using functional

furniture that allows you to maintain

great conversation.

Q: What are the benefits of working

with a designer?

A: You are able to work with a professional

who gets to know your style on

a more in-depth level and understands

how to best service your needs.

Designers bring samples to your house,

so you are able to see them next to the

existing elements and lighting.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration?

A: I typically start with a fabulous fabric,

patterned tile, or light fixture, and the

vision comes to me.

Q: Any additional wisdom to share?

A: Don’t be afraid of color, and don’t

buy accessories that are smaller than

a cantaloupe! Smaller accessories will

make your space feel cluttered. We opt

for larger and fewer accessories.

Poolside with the

Hall ”Pack of 3“

Ethan got a tattoo. The tattoo read: PO3,

which is an expression his Mom says a lot.


Since Ethan is an only child, every move

was difficult, saying good-bye to friends, but

we always moved as a ’Pack Of Three‘.

getting their first tattoos that will read PO3

Being a military family, Andy and

Dana Hall have lived in many

homes over the years. However,

their fantastic home in Conway has

turned out to be the perfect fit for what

they’re calling their final move!

Located in the Centennial Valley neighborhood

of west Conway, the Halls’

home is designed for outdoor living,

featuring a covered patio, a screened-in

porch, and a fabulous in-ground pool.

Dana says they use the outdoor space

for watching TV, entertaining family,

enjoying cocktails and conversations

with friends, and just relaxing.

“Andy and I were fortunate enough to

find a home that was completely done,”

says Dana. “We have lived in the home

48 faulkner lifestyle | june/july 2O19


since September. We use the screened-in

porch more than the inside living room!”

A huge reason the Halls purchased this

home in particular is the pool itself. “The

pool was perfect when we moved in. I

always wanted to live on a golf course

with a pool,” said Dana. “The house was

built by a builder (Rex Lovelady) and the

next owners owned a pool company,

the Jerrells! Why would you not buy this

beautiful home? It’s well built and has an

amazing pool.”

Looking at the yard as a whole, the scene

is indicative of life in the pinnacle of

relaxation. Different conversation areas

have been created with modern furniture

(“thank you Cajun Brothers for the beautiful

furniture!”). Different materials have

been used – such as natural stone, rock

and wood – to create visual interest with

textures. And, finally, the landscaping

is lovely, with flowering blooms and

green plants. Personal touches are also

added, such as a Razorback statue sitting

amongst the greenery. “The Razorback

was a gift many years ago. He has lived

in many flower beds in Georgia, Virginia,

Pennsylvania, Missouri, and of course

Arkansas.”

The Halls are a military family, and Dana

said this was the 14th and final move for

her, Andy and their only son, Ethan. “We

had three tours in Washington DC for a

total of nine years. Ethan feels his ‘home’

is split between Virginia and Georgia, but

he was actually born in Arkansas. When

Ethan was in 10th grade in Alexandria,

Va., attending TC Williams High

School (if you ever watched the movie

‘Remember the Titans’, that was his high

school), Andy was faced with a promotion

with a move. After a lot of family

conversation, Andy retired to secure

Ethan finishing his high school career in

one place without another disruption.

faulknerlifestyle.com 49


50 faulkner lifestyle | june/july 2O19


When Ethan graduated in June 2018, his

parents took him to Middle Tennessee

State University for college, as they

were on their way moving back to

Conway. “Since we knew Andy was

retiring and we could live anywhere,

we were looking to get close to family

once Ethan graduated. I was looking

at one neighborhood for about the last

two years before the move (Centennial

Valley). Houses came and went and as

we traveled through, we would look

at houses. Andy called a friend in the

neighborhood and asked if anyone may

be thinking of listing soon. We TOTALLY

lucked out! The Jerrells were wanting to

build another home and we connected!”

Dana grew up in Springdale and Andy

grew up in Crossett, and have decided to

put down their final roots in Arkansas.

They both attended the University of

Central Arkansas, and they married in

July 1997. Dana works for Styker ENT

and is currently supporting the East

Region for On-boarding and Education,

which allows her to also work remotely.

Andy retired after 28 years in the Army.

His last job was the Army National

Guard, G3, having responsibility for

world-wide ARNG operations, training,

aviation, mobilization, force structure,

domestic response and special operations.

Andy also commanded over 9,000

Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and

Coalition forces (Battalion, Brigade, Task

Force level), with deployments to Iraq

and Afghanistan. He is currently working

in the defense industry for Valiant

faulknerlifestyle.com 51


Integrated Services as the Director of

Army National Guard Programs.

Family is very important to all three of

the Halls. Ethan got a tattoo (“Mom

was pushing against any tattoos ...

really not a fan ... but it was small,

over his heart”). The tattoo read: PO3,

which is an expression his Mom says a

lot. “Since Ethan is an only child, every

move was difficult, saying good-bye

to friends, but we always moved as a

‘Pack Of Three’.” Andy and Dana are

now in the process of getting their first

tattoos that will read PO3, and they

also just commissioned a painting from

Vivian Griffith that has multiple hidden

symbols, including PO3....Pack Of 3.

“It is pretty full circle that we came back

to family and friends,” Dana added.

Jerrell‘s Pools

BY COLLEEN HOLT

PHOTOS BY BRANDY STRAIN-DAYER

Jerrell’s Pools of Conway is all about

family – the family members who

run the business, the employees that

work there, and the customers who walk

through their doors.

“We love serving the people of Faulkner

County. Some of the nicest people reside

here in Central Arkansas. We love the

friends we have made through our business,”

says Melissa Jerrell. She and her

husband, Matt, work hand-in-hand in

the family-owned business, along with

Matt’s mother, Sherry, “who is always in

the retail store.”

Jerrell’s Pools has been in business since

1962, offering services that include

building and maintaining pools. “We

build new Gunite and vinyl pools, along

with maintenance and service on pools.

We also do water testing,” Melissa said.

The company has 10 people on staff,

who are committed to work hard to

please all their customers.

“We care about the end product.

Catching and addressing water issues is

something we really stress on. We will

always work to prevent these issues,”

Matt added.

One of the biggest jobs for Jerrell’s Pools

is helping people “create their backyard

oasis.” Some of their customers know

what they want, but might not be sure

how to get there. “We guide them in the

direction to achieve their end result,”

Matt said.

Melissa said that Gunite pools are popular

these days, “as they allow lots of freedom

with your design.” As for vinyl pools,

many are built with sundecks. “These

are perfect for toddlers to play on or to

sunbathe in a ledge lounger,” she added.

Overall, the family and employees at

Jerrell’s Pools want their customers

to enjoy the space they have helped

to create. “I want every family with a

backyard that has a pool from Jerrell’s to

enjoy it for years with their children and

grandchildren,” Melissa says.

Jerrell‘s Pools is located at 4106

Prince St. in Conway. Business hours

are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through

Friday. For more information, you

may call 501-328-5760, or email

Denise Perry, Realtor

Sandstone Real Estate Group

R. Denise Perry aka RDPrealtor, Owner

355 Hogan Lane, Conway

Business Hours: 9am-5pm

How long have you been in business in Faulkner County? All my

life. I attended UCA, and began my real estate career in 2009, so I’m

celebrating 10 years as a Realtor, and 4 years as an Executive Broker.

What do you love most about your business and why? Meeting

new people and helping make their dreams of homeownership come

true! As a former educator, I use my skills to educate my buyers and

sellers on the buying/selling process. It’s always joyous to be able

to hand the keys to that first time homebuyer and see the smile on

their faces, or to shake hands with the seller who says it was such a

smooth process working with me. It’s all about relationships, and I

pride myself on being that resource buyers and sellers need for years

to come. It’s always wonderful to hear that a past client has referred

me to their friends or family. It’s a great compliment!

What are some of the latest trends in your industry? The

housing market in the area, especially new construction is steady

or increasing. This allows home values to remain high or increase

with time. As Realtors, we are always looking for more inventory

of homes to market and show to potential buyers. We enjoy a great

market in Faulkner County.

What sets you apart from others in your industry? Being a Faulkner

County native gives me the opportunity to share the perks of

growing up in an area I love so much. I’m sometimes the first contact

for someone who is moving into this area, and my experience and

expertise are valuable. I pride myself on being very approachable and

down to earth, and bring a sense of relatability to a potential buyer or

seller. As a recent graduate of the Conway Area Leadership Institute, I

gained so much information about the area that a homeowner would

use during the real estate process.

How are you involved in your community/county? I’m a member of

the National Board of Realtors and the Arkansas Realtors Association.

I serve on the Diversity Committee of the Faulkner County Board

of Realtors. I’m happy to be serving as a member of the Reynolds

Performance Hall Community Council and regularly volunteer as an

usher during the performances of the Main Stage Educational Series

at Reynolds. I’m also excited to be newly elected to the Conway

Corporation Board of Directors! Being involved in the community in

which I live and work or so important to me!

What do you love most about being a business owner here? I love

being in business for myself under the agency of Sandstone Real

Estate Group. The company and the agents are family to me. As I go

out to work and serve Faulkner County, that feeling inspires me to

be the best Executive Broker/Realtor I can be. Seeing our community

continuously grow has moved me to want to be a part of the growth

and to make it an even better place to live.

Who is/was your inspiration for owning a business and why? While

teaching 4th grade at Ellen Smith Elementary, a teacher friend said we

should look into going to real estate school, and pretty much the rest

is history. After doing both real estate and teaching at the same time

for about 4 years, the late Greg Hunt, who was my Principal Broker

at the time came over to the house one night to discuss with my

husband and I what full time real estate would look like. He was so

convincing that I could do this thing full time and it’s been a blessing

ever since. I do credit Greg and my current Principal Broker Korry

Garrett for that push to become the best at what I do.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a revolutionary

protocol that will give you healthier

skin with a more youthful appearance

by rejuvenating your skin’s collagen

through an acupuncture-like treatment.

Microneedling can restore your youthful

appearance by introducing holistic processes

to rebuild your skin’s collagen.

When expertly performed, microneedling

causes a change in micro-electrical-currents

that flow between cells that trigger a cascade

of growth factor production. These growth

factors cause the formation of new blood

vessels and critical new blood flow to the

dermis, followed by the migration of new

fibroblast cells. Consequently a harvest of

new, strong and healthy collagen fibers fills

the dermis.

In this case, each tiny insertion of a needle

causes a tiny amount of damage that stimulates

the repair and regenerative mechanisms

of the skin. To be more precise, the fibroblast

cells of the dermis, whose job it is to generate

collagen and elastin, are stimulated by the

penetration of the needle and release a cascade

of growth factors that regulate the mechanisms

of tissue repair and replacement.

This simple procedure results in skin

tightening, skin lifting, shrinking of pores and

overall skin rejuvenation. Many elements of

aging and damaged skin improve, such as fine

lines, wrinkles, skin roughness, scars, and,

to a lesser degree, skin sagging. Essentially,

microneedling is stimulating the natural

physiology of the skin, and engaging it to

rebuild itself from the inside out.

The microneedling treatment is administered

with tiny acupuncture needles arranged on

a pen-like device, with hundreds of precise

needle insertions through the epidermis (the

thin top layer of the skin) into the underlying

dermis where the collagen matrix is found.

A grid pattern is typically used so that the

density (spacing) of the needle insertions is

even throughout the area being treated.

A number of surgical pen-like devices have been

developed with electric reciprocating motors that

cause the needles to move up and down like a

sewing machine many times per second (similar

to a tattoo gun). These devices can also vary

the depth that the needles penetrate, so that the

proper insertion depth can be selected to match

the varying thicknesses of skin.

Typically, a patient’s face is “pinkish” when they

leave our clinic, which may persist for 24-36

hours. Depending on the condition of the skin,

typical protocols for skin tightening call for a

series of 3-5 microneedling treatments about

3-4 weeks apart. Protocols for scarring may

require as many as 8 microneedling treatments.

Bottom line: Microneedling treatments

properly done are comfortable, quick and

safe, and healing time is minimal. The results

are long lasting and real, and the cost is

relatively inexpensive.

truth on the go

Are You Determined?

BY ANDREA LENNON

There comes a point in life when

every believer in Jesus Christ must

exercise determination in his or

her walk with God. This point comes at

different times and for different reasons.

For some, determination is needed to

get real about controlling cycles of sin.

For others, determination is needed to

recognize overwhelming fears. Most of

us will face times when determination is

needed to deal with issues from the past.

Without a doubt, determination is needed

every day if we long to grow in our faith.

At the heart of determination is a desire

to grow closer to God by demonstrating

a relentless pursuit of His ways and His

plans. In this context, determination

has nothing to do with will power. If

will power made up determination, we

would simply demonstrate what we can

do apart from God. Rather, determination

for the believer in Jesus Christ is

a beautiful combination of a personal

decision to follow God’s will as well as

a daily surrender to God and His life

changing power. Ultimately, determination

is exercised each time we embrace

God’s ways and plans even when they

are hard to understand or accept.

Jesus displayed determination during His

time on this earth. Luke 9:51 states, “As

the time approached for him to be taken

up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for

Jerusalem.” (New International Version)

Luke 9:51 challenges me on many levels

and is probably one of my favorite

moments in Jesus’ earthly ministry. Jesus

knew the reason He was returning to

Jerusalem. Jesus knew it was time for His

death. Nothing about Jesus’ death was

going to be easy. His death was going to

be painful on every level. Jesus would

experience separation from His Father

as He paid for our sins. Jesus would

also experience physical pain as He was

beaten and nailed to a cross.

As Jesus faced the task of returning

to Jerusalem, the Bible states that He

was resolute in His determination to

accomplish the will of the Father. To be

resolute means to be purposeful and

unwavering. Jesus took the necessary

steps to be obedient to God when He

“set out” for Jerusalem.

Jesus’ life provides the perfect example

for us. Jesus responded to the hardest

call on His life with a relentless pursuit of

God’s plan. Today, do you face a situation

that requires a God-sized amount

of determination? Perhaps this situation

involves overcoming an area of sin, facing

an overwhelming fear, dealing with an

unresolved issue from your past, or daily

answering God’s call to live for Him.

If so, set your mind to action by making

a personal decision to follow God’s

will as you daily surrender to His life

changing power. Then “set out” to

accomplish His will by taking the necessary

steps, both big and small, to make

spiritual progress in your life. As you

do, you will demonstrate a determined

walk with God that is not based on

your ability but rather on God’s power

at work in you. The good news is that

Godly determination leads to surrender

and surrender leads to freedom. Peace is

right around the corner because determination

positions you to experience the

presence of God in your daily life. So,

I have one question for you. “Are you

determined to follow Jesus?”

Andrea Lennon: An “on the go” kind of girl who loves Jesus, Andrea’s life

calling is to teach women to know the truth, live the truth, and share the

truth. Her passion is honest conversation about the topics that drive our

lives and how we can weather the storms through the love and power of

our Lord and His Word. Connect with Andrea at AndreaLennonMinistry.org.

to close, untimely accidental deaths,

and burns to Charlton Heston?

Could it be simply saying the word

“Macbeth” while in a theater? Why

is this famous play so cursed? And

why do so many actors fear the title?

Actor Nick Narcisi explores both

the play and the history books for

answers. WEDNESDAY, JULY 3rd

Don‘t Just Straighten Teeth…

Increase Your Face Value!

As parents, we want what is best for our

children in every way. Many parents are

aware of the specific milestones that our

children should reach during the first eighteen

months of life, however there are several

important growth and development factors

that must be evaluated in each child during

the first decade of life. It is often your child’s

dentist who becomes the guardian of normal

facial growth and development. The role of

your dentist is more than just taking care of

your child’s teeth. It is their goal to monitor and

guide the growth and development of young

children to achieve the following:

• Optimal esthetics

• A beautiful “full smile”

• A normal and functional bite

• No TMJ problems

• No sleep disordered breathing

• A lifetime of oral health

Many parents are unaware that 60% of their

child’s facial development is completed by the

age of 8, and that 90% of facial development is

completed by the age of 12. This means that the

earlier your child sees a dentist, the better the

opportunity to detect and correct any growth

and development problems that may be present.

One of the most common abnormalities in a

child’s facial growth and development is caused

by a compromised airway — the inability to

breathe properly through the nose. Children

who cannot breathe well through their nose will

tend to breathe through their mouth. This sets

up a chain of events which may severely impact

not only the health of a child, but also the way a

child’s facial features develop, and ultimately the

way a child looks as an adult.

The effects of a compromised airway on the

growth of a child are revealed in many ways. The

tongue often positions itself snugly in the lower

jaw to allow a child to breathe more readily

through the mouth. This in turn changes the

growth of the lower jaw so that it grows more

vertically. This change in growth direction makes

the child’s face grow longer. At the same time

since nasal breathing is severely compromised,

the upper jaw and midface (the nasal bones,

cheek bones, and bones supporting the tissue of

the face) fail to develop at a normal rate because

the natural growth stimulant of air flow through

the nose is absent. This results in a deficiency

of growth of the upper jaw and midface, which

added to the long facial growth from the lower

jaw, directly impacts the facial balance and

appearance of a child and later as an adult.

As parents we often see the signs of airway

problems, but they often go unnoticed. Here are

a few common symptoms of airway problems:

• Mouth breathing – lips apart

• Chapped lips and soft tissue gingivitis

• Venous pooling beneath the eyes – dark

circles beneath the eyes

• Change in head posture – posturing the

head forward and/or tipping the forehead

backwards

• Tonsil and adenoid problems – chronic

sinus problems, throat problems

• Snoring – children do not usually snore

• Loud grinding of teeth during sleep

• Bed wetting

• Reflux in the eustachian tube – leads to

inner ear infections.

The child’s dentist working closely with an

ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist) can

help to assess and eliminate the causative

factors of facial growth abnormalities. When

corrected early in a child’s life, the facial

growth is encouraged to return to harmonious

growth and development. In those cases

where facial growth changes are significant

and facial harmony is disrupted, the dentist

may intervene and guide the child’s growth

back to normal. Using various oral appliances,

the dentist can actually modify the abnormal

growth pattern and restore the balance of

growth that nature intended.

If you have a concern about your child’s ability

to breathe, or rate of growth and development

discuss it with your dentist or otolaryngologist.

If you would like to speak to Dr. Stephen Deal

about these aspects of your child’s health, you

can make an appointment for evaluation by

calling (501) 679-4700.

General Dentist: Dr. Stephen Deal, DDS,

DFBI, FAGD, FIAO, CDE, Greenbrier, AR

Because your

smile is

kind of a

BIG DEAL!

Rally for Recovery

There were about 600 in attendance for the 5th

Annual Renewal Ranch Rally for Recovery, held at

Conway Expo Center & Fairgrounds on the 18th of

May. This year’s Rally for Recovery was presented by

First Security Bank.

Renewal Ranch is a non-profit, faith-based

organization dedicated to restoring broken lives

through Christ, while providing the resources needed

to lead productive lives free from drug and alcohol

abuse. The Rally is designed to increase awareness

about the devastation of drug and alcohol addiction,

while providing hope that freedom from addiction is

possible.

For the second year, Renewal Ranch partnered with

Tacos 4 Life raising 1,400 meals to feed those in need

across the seas. Andy’s Frozen Custard also sponsored

the event by providing dessert for those attending.

Other sponsors for the event included Arrow

Plumbing, Conway Corporation, Kathy Linn,

Car-Son Construction, Steve Landers Toyota,

Cousins’ Office Furniture, Circle Z Ranch & Cattle

Co, M&L Properties, Heritage Bible Church, and

Tipton Equipment Restaurant Supply.

The event raised over $70,000, $15,000 of which was

in a single offering during the night.

Robert Lewis, creator of Men’s Fraternity and author

of “Raising a Modern-Day Knight,” was the keynote

speaker. Lewis is also the pastor-at-large for Fellowship

Bible Church in Little Rock.

Chase Moser, the Phase I Supervisor, gave his

testimony of how God has delivered him from a life

of addiction and brought him to working within the

ministry of Renewal Ranch and is currently pursuing a

degree in Leadership in Ministry from Central Baptist

College. Laurie Milholland, the mother of a current

Phase I resident also spoke of the hope she now has

for her son, the joy of seeing him each Saturday at

Renewal Ranch chapel services, and about the power

of prayer which has shown tangible results within her

family. Graduates of the program and their families

walked the stage and spoke of how God has forever

changed their lives, and for many of them reunited

them with their families.
