Memorable Project Story:
“One of the most rewarding projects I have worked on was the renovation and re-development of the Porterdale Mill in Porterdale, Georgia. My husband’s ancestors actually worked at the mill in its heyday, so it was a wonderful experience to see that historic building given a new life to revitalize a charming town.”
“I have the same philosophy for clients as I do in life, treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself. If you do that, you should have covered everything.”
“I enjoy gardening, sewing, needlework and DIY projects, but mostly spending time with my children and seeing them grow.”
Little Known Fact:
