I am the daughter of Bruce and Lois Varnes and the late Amelia Varnes of Apalachicola. I’ve been married to Jim Ward for 16 years. I have been a resident of Franklin County for 23 years having moved here when I was 11 years old. I graduated from Apalachicola High School in 1997. I moved away to attend college obtaining an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Care from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL and finished my internship at Shands at the University of Florida. Upon graduation from College, Franklin County called me back, and I’ve been here ever since.
