What year did you get started in the industry: I hopped into repping in 1988 with Russ Berrie & Co.
Tell us about your family, significant other, children, and pets:
My parents are here in Starkville. Mom was a highly successful gift shop chain owner/operator for many years and is now retired but very actively selling her own designs in jewelry on Etsy. Dad’s retired army as a Sergeant Major and we enjoy getting together for our monthly lunches at Oby’s delicatessen where I worked during college at MSU. My two siblings are younger; Susie and Tom who are both successful, and each reside in Cumming, GA with their families.
What are your hobbies outside of work:
Hobbies include keeping my beautiful place looking great, love to bbq, have been involved in numismatics since childhood-I’m crazy about early American coinage. I’m currently serving as Grand Oaks HOA president with minor responsibilities on the weekend. Learning a lot and having a lot of fun actually.
