Campaign Director

I joined United Way of Northeast Mississippi in June of 2021. I am a lifelong Mississippi resident and primarily grew up in Holly Springs.  I am a 2016 graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, #SMTTT. While in college, I focused most of my studies around non-profit organizations.

My wife, Brooke, and I have lived in Tupelo since 2019 and are residents of the Historic Mill Village neighborhood. You will primarily find us with our miniature schnauzer, J.J., hanging out downtown, or at one of the many events hosted in Tupelo. I also spend a large part of my free time on the Pickleball court while Brooke teaches piano. We are members of First United Methodist Church of Tupelo.

I am glad to be a part of the United Way of Northeast Mississippi team. I look forward to meeting people throughout our eight counties in hopes to spread the “good news” of United Way and provide a greater quality of life to all Northeast Mississippians.
