My Journey in the Hearth Industry

I began in 1981, eager and curious. By 1989, I was CSIA Certified. When I opened my hearth shop in 1992, I soon realized there was so much more to learn: products, installation requirements, service procedures, and more. This was more than a job; it became my calling.


The Value of Education and Mentorship

Embracing continual learning was my commitment to my customers, my family, and myself. I’ve been blessed with great mentors, and I’ve strived to absorb and apply their teachings in my journey.


Contributions and Leadership

The industry recognized my passion and dedication. Leading the Southern Association of Chimney Professionals and being a part of the NCSG Board has been an honor. Through these roles, my love and understanding of the industry deepened.
