I grew up in Columbia and went to Hickman High School. I have always loved golf and went to Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and played on their team while working towards my degree in Marketing and Finance. Upon graduating, I joined my father in the insurance business. Since 2015, I have taken over daily management responsibilities at our agency and enjoy building relationships and helping our customers here in central Missouri and beyond. I like to spend my free time with my growing family and on the golf course. I also enjoy taking my young pointing lab, Gumbo, to training and should have myself a hunting companion in no time.
