I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and moved to the Valley in grade school. I am a graduate of Fresno State with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. I enjoy working at LPS and feel like I am part of a team filling an important role. In my free time I play D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) on the weekends.

I'm a Fresno State graduate, but I'm also a fan of Notre Dame. If I'm not working, I enjoy sleeping in, traveling and seeing new places. I like hanging out with friends and family, and tailgating at Fresno State home games. It's a pleasure working at LPS because of the people and also because I feel valued here. My favorite dish is lasagna at Luna's in Clovis.
