Kent Sanneman was born in Lynchburg, VA. He grew up in Forest, VA, where he still lives today. He attended Longwood University in Farmville, VA, where he discovered his passion for wildlife research and biology in general. He graduated in 2008 with a BS in Biology. Since 2011, he has worked in the service department at Billy Craft Honda, becoming assistant to the Service Manager and Dispatcher.

He has discovered his love for small town Virginia life since he began spending more time in Farmville. He met the love of his life, Stephen Marion, at a Farmville Pride meeting in May 2018. He is proud to be part of Farmville Pride as it shows that gay culture and life is able to thrive in rural America. He would love to see Farmville Pride grow to have its own business office in town and be a voice for the LGBTQ+ community in and around the area.
