1. How did you end up in this industry?
I was working for an on-site copying company and Carter was looking for a mailroom supervisor. After about a year and a half, Carter wanted to keep the job in-house instead of outsourcing and offered the job to me. Then, a year later, my current position in accounting became available. I have been doing this ever since and I love it!

2. What’s one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you? 
I took 3rd place in my 5th grade talent show doing a break-dance routine with a few of my friends. I dare not try it now as I might break something.

3. Best part of your job here at Carter?
Being in accounting, I deal with everybody at the company so I’d have to say my co-workers are the best part. The ability to work hard and have fun doing it makes work not feel like work.

4. Who has been the most influential person in your career?
It would have to be several folks – all the supervisors I have worked for. They each brought something to the table, whether good or bad, that I could learn from. My current supervisor, Gil, of course, has been the best one of all.

5. Where in the world are you headed on your next vacation?
Well everyone will guess a cruise since I go on one or two a year, but… We are heading to Myrtle Beach right after the kids get out of school at the end of May.

6. What did you want to grow up to be?
A police officer.  

7. If you could have lunch with a famous person – dead or alive – who would it be and why? 
It would have to be Bruce Lee. I grew up watching martial arts movies and he is a great teacher and actor. I would have loved to take classes from him.

8. Are you a social media user? Which platforms?
I’m old-school and use smoke signals or Morse code to communicate. Just kidding, an email or telephone call will do it for me!

9. What’s on your bucket list that you’d like to share?
I would like to skydive, but just once.

10. Favorite thing about Atlanta?
Being surrounded by “millions” of fellow Bulldog fans everywhere you go. Go Dawgs!
