I do communications and PR for Walton EMC, a customer-owned power company that provides energy to most of Oconee county. I began my career with the co-op at our Watkinsville office in 1987 as an energy advisor and took on my present role in 1993.
1987 was also the year I moved to Oconee County. I served as chairman of the Watkinsville Fall Festival four times and was board chairman for the Oconee Chamber in 1996.
I have two sons that have gone through the Oconee County school system and a wife that teaches in the same.
