Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I chose this career because it’s all about helping others. I help my members plan for a secure financial future.

I serve members in…

I primarily serve residents of northeast Mississippi, but I'm available throughout the state.

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

Individuals, families, those approaching retirement, and small-business owners.

I attended…

Mississippi Gulf Coast and Northeast Mississippi Community Colleges.

I am very proud of…

having been an integral part of helping thousands of Mississippi families achieve their goals by supplying educational scholarships through nonprofit organizations.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

I was the executive director of Mid America Development Foundation. I was also the executive director of Tri State Educational Foundation for 10 years.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I believe in the organization - not only for how it supports members to help them reach their financial goals, but also for the way it supports my community and allows me to give back.

The best part of my career is…

helping my members. This career gave me a super power so to speak, the super power of shrinking and expanding. This career gives me the tools to shrink their worry of protecting family and loved ones in their absence. And I help my clients expand their portfolios through affordable life insurance products and annuities for a solid financial future. I feel good knowing I help make a positive impact on their lives.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

each and every time I am able to positively impact the lives of those I serve becomes my new favorite moment in this career.

“I chose this career because it’s all about helping others. I help my members plan for a secure financial future.”
