How long have you been in Greenville? Whole life
Most interesting fact about you: I am open minded
Your background: I was born and raised in Greenville! I grew up over in the Five Forks area way before Green Ridge and Whole Foods came into town. I rarely came downtown because downtown wasn't the best place at that time.
As a kid, I used to ride my bike inside Mills Mill where my parents had a business. That complex was transformed into The Lofts at Mills Mill, which sits along Mills Avenue.
My family has always owned businesses in the Upstate, from record storage all the way to restaurants! Growing up in an entrepreneurial family is a little different than your average upbringing. I started working at a young age, learning about keeping the books and finances before I had my own bank account . Either way I wouldn't trade it for the world!
In 2008, I moved downtown and couldn't be happier. Through a bit of exploration, I discovered Greenville's culture, community, and excellent restaurants. Greenville is a great place for young professionals to live. I spend my free time downtown.
My dog, Otis, and I couldn't be happier to call this place home!
