Seals attends Holy Family Catholic Church where she has served as a faith formation teacher for 18 years and serves as a liturgical minister and secretary for the Ladies Guild. Through her church, she has served as a volunteer for Stewpot Ministries and Habitat for Humanity.

A life-long Mississippian, Seals was born in Forest but moved to Vicksburg at an early age where she lived until college. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology and secondary education from Millsaps College and she received her Master’s degree in school administration from Mississippi College.

Seals is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kermit Harness. She has been married to Calvin Seals for 30 years, and they are the proud parents of two children: Austin, a senior at Claflin University in South Carolina, and Ashley, a graduate of Louisiana State University, now residing in Houston, Texas.
