“I’ve lived here my whole life. I graduated from Walker High School, and then went to Florence for a couple of years, but knew I wanted to be back in Jasper.”
“I went to college, but it took me a little while to figure out what I wanted to do. I finally settled on getting a marketing degree. I’m the marketing director here at Chick-fil-A. I handle all the signage here and sometimes we get to take the cow out and that’s really fun. Most days I’m just a regular manager here, though.
I’ve been at Chick-fil-A for over 10 years. I love meeting all the new customers but we have a lot of regulars, too. We know them by name. We see people here, we see them out in town and people recognize you. It’s great.
I’ve worked at All Four for a little over two years. I wanted to get into real estate because I like people and I’ve always wanted to be my own boss. I thought real estate would be a great way to do that. I knew James Ann’s daughter, Gari Leigh, and it just seemed like a natural fit for me. I knew it was something I wanted to try.
I’ve been able to sell houses to people who work here [at Chick-fil-A], so that’s been a fun, unexpected bonus. I’m proud to serve Walker County in both fields!” 78
