I have experience working as an employee, a manager, and as a business owner and I am quickly learning all facets of business from crisis-management all the way down to keeping ink in the printer.

Legal Clerk

Stokes, Williams, Sharp & Davies

January 2013Present (1 year 9 months) Downtown Knoxville, TN

My day-to-day at the law firm is hectic to say the least, but I am rewarded every day by the invaluable experiences that I acquire. I spend my days working with great people at dozens of courthouses and law firms throughout East Tennessee, while also managing in-house technology support and business marketing decisions.

Web Developer

Independent Contractor

August 2008April 2014 (5 years 9 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area

My fascination with technology led me to begin building websites as a freshman in high school. Over the years I have amassed the knowledge and capacity to build high-functioning and cost-effective websites for clients in East Tennessee. In 2014, I decided to expand my services by founding my third company, Make Me Modern LLC.

Founder

Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC

January 2012January 2013 (1 year 1 month) Knoxville, Tennessee Area

After a year of operating Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC, I decided that a boat rental company would be a more profitable operation in the present dwindling tourism market. Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC was Knoxville's premier boat rental company located on the beautiful waters of the Tennessee River in Knoxville, TN.

Founder

Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC

January 2011May 2012 (1 year 5 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area

In 2009, I discovered a gap in Knoxville's tourism industry. A year of planning and investing led to the founding of my first company, Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC, during my senior year of high school. Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals provided an exhilarating experience for its customers on the scenic waters of the Tennessee River in Knoxville, TN.

Dockhand

Volunteer Landing Marina

May 2010November 2010 (7 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area

Working at Volunteer Landing Marina opened my eyes to the complexities of marina management. The ability to work and excel in every aspect of the marina greatly increased my knowledge of the day-to-day challenges that a business faces. Two of my previous businesses (Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC and Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC) operated out of Volunteer Landing Marina.
