I am from Little Mountain, but chose Newberry as I wanted to raise my little girl in a small town environment and be close to my family. ​

My vision for Newberry is to see more locals support the growth of the downtown area and Main Street businesses. I hope to see more people coming to Main Street to shop instead of riding to Irmo or Columbia. 

The advice I would give my 20-year old self is invest your time in experiences, not material things. 

I admire my Dad. He was hard working, dedicated to his family, and never let anything get to him. I still have yet to meet anyone as laid back as he was.
