United States Postal Service City Carrier, 

Downtown Newberry

I am originally from Saluda but moved here when I was six when my mom and step dad got married. I choose to stay here because my family’s here and I love to be around them -they are my back bone and I wouldn’t want to leave them. 

My vision for Newberry is for it to continue to develop and expand. Slowly over the years we’ve gained and expanded a lot and that’s a good thing. Newberry is a good town and place to live. ​

The advice I would give my 20-year old self is to never give up on your goals and dreams. If you put in the effort and time, you can do and accomplish anything you put your mind to. And I say the same to my son all the time - to never give up and believe. 

You would be surprised to know that I love to cook and share my food with people. I get the passion from my parents and grandparents who are all great cooks. 

I admire: my Mom because she is a great woman. She gives me the strength and motivation to be the best. She’s my personal cheerleader - always cheering me on and by my side. She inspired me to work hard for what I want and that I can do anything with hard work and motivation. My wish is that I can be as great as she is as a mother to my son Payton because she’s the BEST!
