Tell us your Tallahassee story, what brought you?

I was born and raised in Tallahassee. I graduated from Lawton Chiles High School. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to attend college, I just knew I didn’t want to go south to UF or Miami. I decided on going to Florida State University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Finance. Right out of college I was offered a job at North Florida Payroll, which is now Synchros.

BNI (Tallahassee Biznet)

What is your favorite thing about Tallahassee?

From going to FSU football games, to going out to the Miccosukee Greenway, Tallahassee is great in providing diverse activities to do.

What business or event would you like to see come to Tallahassee?

I would love an amusement park/water park to come here. If Wild Adventures can survive in Valdosta, who says it can’t in Tallahassee

What would you say to someone considering moving to Tallahassee?

They say the people make the place, and I’d have to agree. For whatever reason you come to Tallahassee, know it was for the right reason. Prepare to be surrounded by people who love their city, and a city that will provide you with what you need.

What is your favorite thing about your career?

I work a majority of the time in the small business community. One of my favorite things is being able to meet all different types of businesses, learning their stories and the reasons behind why they do what they do.
