In Spenser's free time (what little there is) she likes to travel, read Bill Bryson's books, and eat spicy food. Sometimes she even takes long walks on the beach. Oh, and she was Miss West Virginia in 2011, too.

Spenser truly is a champion for the cause of servicemen and women, and as a veteran myself, I am most grateful for her labors to recognize the sacrifices made by our armed forces. May her enthusiasm and experience serve as a catalyst for future public service.
