I was born and raised in Whiteville, North Carolina, and I remain a country girl at heart! I went to Wake Forest University in Winston Salem for undergrad and then got a Master’s in Education shortly after at UNCG. I worked in higher education in a variety of roles, including housing, career services, academic advising, and directing an outreach program. I completed my MBA at UMW in 2019. I then completed specialized training in taxation and gained the designation Chartered Tax Professional, as well as receiving my Health and Life Insurance licenses. Since 2021, I have operated Hightower Insurance & Tax with my husband, Jan-Michael. We are both dedicated to educating people on strategies & tactics that the wealthy utilize in creating and preserving their wealth.
Outside the office, I love spending time with my husband and three children. If I’m not traveling, my life is dedicated to cheerleading. I am a cheer coach and a cheer parent. I also enjoy participating on the adult cheer team when I can!
