I have been in the insurance business, serving my friends and neighbors in Western North Carolina, for more than twenty-six years. I am a graduate of East Tennessee State University with a B.S. degree in Business Administration. I am the mother of three children. Andy, my oldest, is a Lt. Colonel in the United State Air Force. Allison is an attorney with Smith Moore Leatherwood in Greensboro, North Carolina. My youngest, Jon, is my business partner. I also have three wonderful grandchildren. I am a Rotarian, and I currently serve as President of my club. I am a member of the Chamber of Commerce, where I serve as an Ambassador. I am a former board member of the Haywood County Schools Foundation, a former PTO president, and I currently serve on the board of There Is More Ministries. In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, socializing with friends, gardening and exercising.
