Community Development Officer
I’m originally from Memphis TN, and graduated from a Historically Black College, Tennessee State

market. I quit my job with the local station, became the administrative assistant for a Small Business
Development Center (SBDC), and absolutely fell in love with economic development and helping
entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of business ownership. I was with the SBDC for 10 years and

have roughly 75 birds ranging from small budgies to pheasants, to my Catalina Macaw named Tim, to
my 9 Adult peacocks! I’m also a motorcycle enthusiast and have a collection of 8 that I ride almost daily!
