ABOUT ME

I am a native of Lewisburg, TN. As a high school student, I excelled in the classroom and on the football field winning many accolades and titles. My success as a student athlete earned me a full scholarship to Carson Newman University. It was there that I graduated with my degree in Business Management and later went on to earn my MBA at Lincoln Memorial University.

After graduation, not sure of what I really wanted in my career; I decided I wanted to help people, lead a team, and own my business one day. After eleven years of working in careers that didn't offer what I was truly looking for, I found a life-changing opportunity. That opportunity was to become a State Farm agent. It is rare that you can find a career that is truly ideal. So, when presented with the opportunity of moving to Blount County and starting an agency from scratch, I jumped all over it!
