I am a Vance County native and have been a local business person in Vance County for the past 18 years. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in business administration. I have previously practiced as a realtor in the Henderson Market. I am currently a general contractor working in residential and commercial construction. In addition, I am a county commissioner for Vance County and serve on numerous boards and committees at the local, regional, and state level. I also continue to coach in local recreation leagues and support youth in our community.
