Why did you choose to come to work at Balentine?
My close friend, Balentine’s Director of Marketing, Liz Thomas, brought this opportunity to my attention. I instantly connected with everyone I met at Balentine, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the company’s core values align very closely with my own. After that, there was no question Balentine was a perfect fit for me.
What do you like to do in your down time away from work?
I love spending time outdoors with my husband and son—whether riding bikes, going to the park, or just sitting in nature. I also enjoy relaxing with a good book in the front porch swing that I proudly built.
Who were your heroes growing up and how did that influence your life and career?
My biggest hero was and will always be my dad. He worked so hard to make sure that we were provided with a great life and amazing opportunities, but he never allowed day-to-day stresses to interfere with how he treated people. I never feel as safe as when I have my dad standing next to me.
