Crystal Hill – Owner of Birds on a Wire Photography

My name is Crystal Hill and I have owned Birds on a Wire Photography for over 12 years. I have grown up in Chambers County; starting all the way back in pigtails at Central Elementary and graduating from Lanett High in 1996.

I think one special key advantage about smaller communities is that often times there are more tightknit groups of people who will help you and encourage you to do your best. I have traveled to several...

Dr. Phil Tranqui

Most of my 11 years of running has been done in Chambers County. I’ve enjoyed running the many neighborhoods of Lanett, the hilly country roads leading to Lafayette and the historic rails to trails...

Miracle Williams, RN

My first job was as a LPN at EAMC-Lanier Nursing Home. I absolutely loved being a geriatric nurse and I loved taking care of the elderly.

Since I graduated from RN school, I have had the opportunity to work in MedSurg, ICU, Drug Detox, and Rehab at EAMC-Lanier. I gained an enormous amount of experience and have had the privilege to work with some of the most intelligent and compassionate professionals...
