What year did you join Blackman & Sloop?
I joined in February of 2021. I was fortunate enough to join before the very fun beach trip this summer!

Where did you go to college?
Appalachian State University. I had the pleasure of spending my college years in the mountains of North Carolina.

Why did you choose Blackman & Sloop?
Initially, I thought that joining Blackman & Sloop would be a perfect opportunity to grow my professional skills. While it has certainly been that I have also been able to surround myself with talented individuals who are happy to share their knowledge and expertise.

I have been able to get to know clients and help make an impact on their business. I enjoy working side by side with coworkers to tackle problems. Blackman & Sloop has also given me opportunities to develop personally. An example of this would be working on the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion committee where I am able to help address societal issues that I am passionate about.

What do you enjoy most about living in The Triangle?
I know wholeheartedly that part I like the least – the humidity and mosquito combination! Jokes aside, I do love this area; I grew up here. I am quite partial to the distinct feel that each area brings and the various activities promoted by different towns. I like to frequent the tennis courts and soccer fields in Apex and go to some of my favorite restaurants in Cary and Chapel Hill. I have been spending more time in Durham and Raleigh as of late, experiencing local restaurants and shops, and just enjoying the liveliness of downtown. One last thing is the music venues in the area are a huge plus for me!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
This is a very tough question, and there are so many places that I would genuinely love to spend time. If I had to choose just one area, it would have to be somewhere that borders the Mediterranean Sea. The climate is amazing and the cuisine in countries like Italy, Greece, and Morocco is delicious! I would be near large city centers in Europe and Africa, have beautiful countryside and mountains available to me, and so many destinations to visit with just a quick flight or train ride.
