“When I’m not coaching, giving back, speaking or fulfilling my military duties, you can find me in my most valuable roles – Wife to Tse and Mother to two of God’s greatest creations, our daughters. I enjoy family time, cooking, spending time at the beach, shopping online and traveling the world.

Most importantly, I love the Lord” – Linda Arrey
