Misty Vinson Hughes

We're pleased to feature Misty, a Carson-Newman Universitiy alumna and two-year member who's found her calling as a consumer scientist in the high-tech world of high-end home appliances.

When asked to describe what AAFCS is to her, Misty wrote, "AAFCS allows all of us in FCS to stay connected and updated on our practicing field as well as the other FCS fields we may not be specifically involved with."
