TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?

I am a Midwesterner, originally from the Quad Cities (Illinois/Iowa), also dubbed the QC. I moved to Charlotte a little over a year ago to open up the company’s southeastern location. I absolutely love living in the south and have met some fabulous people. Between business, volunteer work and my personal life, I am usually running 87 miles a minute and have a jammed packed schedule, but wouldn’t have it any other way. I love spontaneous and random adventures.

DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORIAL MOMENT?

I believe that I contribute to the community in multiple facets. Through personal and professional ventures, I am working to help make Charlotte a stronger community. I volunteer with various nonprofits. I Co-Chaired Classroom’s Central’s fundraising event, which raised over $100,000 for underprivileged kids in the Charlotte area. I am also the Chair for the United Way’s Women United leadership society. Women’s United will raise funds for health and human service agencies in the Central Carolinas. I also sit on the Chamber of Commerce Young Professional board, which focuses on economic betterment.
