I wasn’t born here, but it turns out my people were from around here anyway. I was born in Florida, raised in New York on beautiful, beach-lined, Long Island, and other than that one odd year in Texas, I’ve been here in the Upstate ever since. I still remember getting off the plane at Greenville-Spartanburg Airport, (back before we had those connector tubes) I took the stairs off the plane to the tarmac and marveled at the beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains! That view still makes my heart sing and is why I call Upstate, SC my home!
I’m a proud graduate of Greenville Technical College, where I earned my Associate degree in Human Services, and was awarded the Coca-Cola Silver Scholarship and became part of the South Carolina All-State Academic Team. After GTC, I received my bachelor’s degree in Non-Profit Administration from Bellevue University.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’re celebrating our 9th anniversary this year. We live on the upper west side of West Pelzer, with my son Levi & our pushy bed-hound, Esmerelda, named for the taxi driver in Pulp Fiction. I am an avid gardener, artist, writer and photographer. If your plants aren’t thriving, I recommend rainwater.
I’ve worked previously in business development and Chamber administration so naturally I’m excited about my role as Engagement Manager with the Greenville Chamber. I can think of no place I’d rather be! I may be slightly biased, but I believe I’m surrounded by the best people in the Upstate to work with! As the Engagement Manager, I’m tasked with relaunching our new and improved Ambassador program! I’m very eager to get to know our investors better and help them connect with the people they want to meet to grow their businesses. There is so much opportunity in Greenville! We only need to prepare ourselves to do something that matters today!
