I am the business office manager of Alabama Power’s Clanton Operating Center, responsible for customer service operations in parts of Autauga, Chilton and Coosa counties located in central Alabama. I serve on the Education Workforce Development Council, Chilton County Industrial Development Board, Clanton Industrial Development Board and Jefferson State Community College’s  Community and Corporate Advisory Board. I am president of the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce. I served on the Chilton County United Way Board as Chairman of the Board.


My sister died from leukemia when she was very young. My mom is a cancer survivor!

I know I will make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer. I know that raising funds for the American Cancer Society will help save lives from breast cancer.

I believe that one day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone’s life. Men In Pink is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease.

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.

I have a great love for people. I wanted to share my story in hopes of inspiration and uplifting someone with this often fatal disease.
