I have been in the masonry field for years. I started at Tazewell County Career Technical Center in 1982-83 where I received my diploma in masonry. I moved on to start my own business in a few years later. I have brick veneered and blocked many buildings in this area and also have worked as far away as South Carolina in my career as a mason.
I have been an educator for 11 years. I have 36 years of experience in the field. I have bricked many buildings in and out of the area. I also was a school board member for 8 years. I served on the department of social services board of directors for 8 years. Additionally, I've been a director of the Labor of Love Mission since 2002.
