Why did you join JxnYP?

I joined JYP to be a part of the change and revitalization of Jackson as well as to grow my personal and professional network. What I did not expect was the lifelong friends I would make. 

Build Relationships: What is your favorite relationship you've built through JxnYP?

Although I have made several personal connections through JYP, my greatest connection is Ashley Nobert. Not only has she become a great friend, but she is like family to my partner and I. 

Have Fun: If we could bring ONE new fun thing to Jackson, what would it be?

As many know I am a movie fanatic. I love the experience of sitting in a theater and enjoying a great movie. In this vein I would love to see a multiplex movie theater come to downtown Jackson. Where you can get drinks, dinner and enjoy the whole experience. 

LOVE Jackson: What do you love most about Jackson?

Jackson has been a part of me my whole life, my dad was a teacher and principal in Jackson and we used to spend summers hanging out at the mall or going to the ice cream parlour. What I love most about Jackson is that it doesn't quit. Everytime it gets knocked down, it gets right back up.
