Where were you born and where did you grow up? I’m a Charlotte native, born and raised less than two miles from The Ivey!
Favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my dog, Spencer. I enjoy trips to the mountains, beach and any professional tennis tournament!
What excites you about your work at The Ivey and the contribution you make here? I’m grateful to work with such an extraordinary team in such a beautiful setting here at The Ivey, and I enjoy building relationships with members and their families. Starting as a volunteer at The Ivey, I witnessed firsthand the outstanding care given to each and every member. It’s a great place to be!
