What is your personal life motto?
My personal life motto is “make a plan, work a plan”. This is something that my grandfather instilled in my mother, and that she has instilled in my siblings and me from a young age. I think this can be applicable in all areas of life, but is especially crucial professionally to keep business moving forward.
What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?
My favorite travel destination is the US and British Virgin Islands. Thirteen of my family members have chartered a sailboat three different times since I was young and sailed to several of the islands. We all had key roles to play each day as we ventured to the next island – these are trips that I will never forget!
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why?
I would want to travel back to the 1960s. This was the time that my grandparents were at the same stage of life that I am in now – early in their career and young adults. Hearing them talk about this time of their life and how much our world has changed since then, it makes me very curious about the simplicity of the life they lived at that time.
What do you love to do outside of work?
I enjoy running on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, or trying new restaurants in downtown Greenville. I am also an active member of United Way’s Young Philanthropists and enjoy volunteering in the community alongside United Way.
