After graduating from NCSU and Elon, Raleigh has been home to me and my family since 1979. Being from a small town in Eastern North Carolina is a gift I’ve learn to appreciate even more as I have grayed. It nurtured a thankfulness for family, friends and building relationships. I have a love and appreciation for our rural communities and the
life they offer. This love and appreciation fuels the passion for the work I do today.
