Accounting / HR / Admin

I am new to the insurance industry, however, I have over 10 years of experience in Accounting. What I like most about what I do, is that I can provide my employers with peace of mind, so they are able to focus their attention on the business.

I grew up in Salem, Virginia. My favorite extracurricular activity growing up was taking ballet at Roanoke College. I still enjoy dancing today and am involved with different line dance groups in my community.

After graduating from Salem High School, I continued my education at Virginia Western Community College. Upon completion of my accounting courses, I was asked to tutor there, which I did for five years. I hold a degree in Business Administration and Social Sciences.

Time with family and friends is most important to me. My favorite time spent is with my new grandson, who I see any chance I get! I also love hanging out with my three dogs, Nakoa, Rose and Chrissy and my cat, Minnie Pearl.

In my free time, you can find me in the gym or starting a new project around the house. I prefer to stay busy, but occasionally, I do enjoy a “Do Nothing” day! One of my guilty pleasures is rehabbing old houses. I like giving old things new life and having an opportunity to engage my creative side.

When I can, I support Angels of Assisi and the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue. These two organizations are very special and important to me.
