Business Affairs

A native of West Virgina, I have called North Carolina home for more than 20 years. I’ve worked at Chappell since the outset and I love the team and culture we have helped build here over the years.

In the office, you can usually find me troubleshooting issues, seeking solutions and new technologies for our team, and just about anything else the day brings.

When I’m not following local and national politics on Twitter or TV,  you can find me binge-watching The Office, keeping our dog entertained, running, relaxing by the water, reading about space, or electric cars (especially Tesla).
