BACKGROUND - I was born in Florence, Alabama in the northwest corner of the state. Home of W.C. Handy Blues and Southern fried soul music from Muscle Shoals Sound Studios ~ Sweet Home Alabama ~ I graduated from Bradshaw High School and received my BS degree from the University of North Alabama. I worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant for 10 years before moving to Huntsville where I worked for 17 years with the U.S. Army Space & Missile Defense Command (SMDC). I worked at SMDC in the Information Technology field writing and overseeing a $450 million dollar IT support contract. I received a Masters Degree in Government Contracting from George Washington University in Washington D.C. in 2000. I moved to the Missile Defense Agency in 2006 where I was employed as a Technical Information Systems Specialist & Contracting Officer Representative (COR) for our Microsoft contract that supports 8,000+ government personnel and contractors.
REAL ESTATE - I have been selling real estate since 2006 along with my government career and January 2014 I retired with 33 years’ service supporting our troops and highly skilled Warfighters. I use my contract skills and knowledge to focus on real estate in North Alabama and sell/list homes from Huntsville north to the Tennessee line, then east to the Georgia line, including Fort Payne & Guntersville. I work full time for my clients to make sure they get the information they need to make very important decisions. As a REALTOR I'm there to make the process less of a problem and make buying or selling your home the happy event it should be. I am fully trained to represent you in all your real estate needs and also have the expertise and skills to advise you on the best choices when selecting and negotiating real estate.
