My family came to east Hillsborough county in 1960 and this has been my home ever since. Subsequent to graduating from Brandon High School in 1972 I enlisted in the United States Air Force. After 4 years of active duty I was honorably discharged. The G.I. Bill afforded me the opportunity to further my education and I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of South Florida in 1981.
Following in my father Grady’s footsteps I became a teacher/ coach in the Hillsborough County School District. I retired after thirty-two years of dedicated service to the school district. However, ten years prior to retirement I obtained my Florida Real Estate License. Working part time at River Hills Realty since 2001 has given me a solid foundation in the fundamentals of real estate. Starting full time in January 2010 has been a seamless transition with all the professional help and leadership offered at River Hills Realty.
