I am a Hickory native and proud graduate of Hickory High School. After attending college at Clemson University and earning my BS in Management, I was fortunate enough to return home and immediately being my real estate career.  When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, volunteering at my church, taking Zumba classes, participating in 5ks, attending local trivia nights, and exploring all that Hickory has to offer!

“I serve on the CVAR Board of Directors because it allows me to advocate for our general membership, ensure their needs are being met, while also giving me a chance to expand upon my leadership abilities.”
