Legal Clerk

Stokes, Williams, Sharp & Davies

January 2013September 2014 (1 year 9 months) Knoxville, TN

The twenty-one months I spent at Stokes Williams thoroughly prepared me for my future ventures. The complex experience I gained by working within a large organization surrounded by highly-trained professionals is invaluable.

My responsibilities expanded daily and my undertakings grew more immense as I worked alongside dozens of people in law firms and courthouses throughout East Tennessee. I also managed in-house technology purchasing, installation, and support as well as business marketing and analytics.

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

My fascination with technology evolved to a passion for website development when I was fifteen years old. Throughout high school and college I amassed the experience and aptitude needed to build high-functioning and cost-effective websites. In 2014, I decided to expand my services by founding my third business, Make Me Modern Inc.


Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC

January 2012January 2013 (1 year 1 month) Knoxville, TN

After a year of operating Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC and listening to customer input, I decided that a boat rental company would be more appealing to Knoxville's family-oriented tourism market. Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC was Knoxville's premier boat rental company located on the beautiful waters of the Tennessee River.


Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC

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

In 2010, I discovered a gap in Knoxville's tourism industry. A year of planning and raising capital led to the founding of my first company 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.
