I began my career with the Development Authority of Lumpkin County in January of 2022. I was recently promoted to the Marketing & Communications Manager; in addition, I provide support for the rapidly growing projects & programs of the Authority. Prior to working for Lumpkin County, I worked for a non-profit as well as I have had many years in the veterinary care industry. I have lived in Lumpkin County since 2006 & my family has three generations living here. I married my high school sweetheart in 2008 & we have 2 children together. Our children were both born in Dahlonega & currently attend school here. My passion is for the arts & architectural history. I hold a degree of Historic Preservation from SCAD. I look forward to learning more about this great community through the Lumpkin Leadership Class.
