How do you volunteer your time in the community? Our youth are some of the most important members of our community; they are our future. Prior to COVID, one of my favorite activities was going to various schools and church youth groups to provide information to students regarding potential crimes our youth may encounter – especially relating to bullying and cyberbullying. I also enjoyed attending school career days to discuss with students potential careers within the judicial branch. Since COVID, my focus has been on using social media to keep our citizens informed about the role of the judiciary in Robeson County.

Who has helped you achieve success in your life and career? Throughout my life and career, I must first give thanks to God for His blessings and guidance. My family has always been my strongest support system in every endeavor that I have sought to achieve. I am forever thankful to my teachers and professors with the Public Schools of Robeson County, at UNCP and at Campbell who equipped me with the knowledge to succeed.

What goal would you like to accomplish before turning 40? I simply hope to continue to serve the interests of justice and equality to all of those who come into contact with our judicial system.

What’s your favorite book? “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein

What are your hobbies? One of my favorite hobbies is spending time with family and friends on the water or at the beach.

What’s your most prized possession? My son, Hamilton, spent 42 days in the NICU at UNC-Chapel Hill. He was born weighing two pounds and twelve ounces, but he was a fighter who is now an energetic and healthy 2-year-old. The mold of his tiny little footprints that were made when he was in the NICU is my most prized possession. They are a reminder of where the grace of God has carried my precious little boy today.

If you had a theme song for your life, what would it be? “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus
