Years in the Industry: Going into my 3rd year (However, after the recent Annual Luncheon it looks like I’m going to be the Den Mother)
Hometown: Rock Hill, SC
Most satisfying part of your job: I really enjoy that every day is different as well as the interactions I have with a diverse set of individuals.
Last book you read or movie you’ve seen: “The Last Thing He Told Me” by Laura Dave. Hallmark Christmas Movies.
Favorite/Dream vacation spot: I’m always a sucker for anywhere warm but I’d LOVE to go back to Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxford, England.

Hobbies/Interests: Art, photography, and I love doing anything outdoors with our two Dobermans… Apollo and Mya.
If you could have lunch with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why? My Father because I miss him every day. Otherwise, I’d meet with Georgia O’Keeffe. She was an amazing artist and an even more impressive woman.
One thing on your bucket list: Hike the Grand Canyon or Sky Dive.
What you like best about CRCBR: I’ve only been a member for a couple of years but enjoy networking and social events. I’m hoping to learn more about what CRCBR has to offer this year.
