“Garner offers the best of several worlds. Our proximity to the heart of the Triangle is certainly an asset, but with a small-town vibe that I enjoy. The size of our community lends itself well to North State’s approach to service—we value getting to know customers on a personal level.”

Fun Fact

I love shag dancing and currently compete on the Competitive Shaggers Association's pro circuit. I am a three-time National Shag Dance Finalist, the 2008 Grand National Shag Dance Team Champion and 2002 National Shag Dance Runner-Up (non-pro). 

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
