I was born and raised in Clinton. I graduated from Clinton High School in 1984. I then went on to graduate from the University of Tennessee in 1989 with a degree in Management.
I have been married to my wife, Tracy, for 23 years. We have been blessed with three children. Alex, 18, is a senior at Clinton High School; Lauren, 16, also attends Clinton High School. Our youngest daughter Sarah is an 8th grader at Clinton Middle School.
My professional career has been in sales and in management. I began my career working for Hallmark Cards Corporate for 11 years. I had numerous positions there including sales, sales training and account management. From there, I entered the pharmaceutical industry. I have been in that industry for the last 18 years, the last 15 of which have been as a manager. I have managed numerous employees, and have learned a great deal about leadership, as well as corporate profitability and responsibility.
