    When I was eight, my family and I moved to Cartersville from Smyrna. I am a graduate of Cartersville High School where I was a part of a state championship baseball team in 2008 my senior year, shortly after winning the senior league baseball world series. I then went on the play for GA Perimeter College before injuries and pressing family matters brought my baseball career to an end. I was fortunate enough to find a great working family with the Metro Kia staff in 2016. After starting in an entry-level position, I was then promoted to the sales department. I take pride in my new career.
