Where are you from? How long have you lived in Charlotte?

Born in Charlotte, raised in Gastonia, NC. I’ve lived in this area my entire life aside from college.

Who is someone you admire, and why?

In my personal life, I admire my mom because she’s always been a hard worker, funny and super creative. She’s also very independent. A celebrity I admire is Bethenny Frankel because she built her business from the ground up and is constantly working on new things and evolving.


Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…

On my couch with a coffee.

Outside of work, what do you do in your spare time?

I like trying new restaurants, catching up with friends, spending way too much time at T.J. Maxx, whipping up a HelloFresh recipe and watching Bravo with my basset hound/husky mix Pippa.
