ABOUT ME

I have found that helping clients purchase their dream home has been such a rewarding experience. My goals for the Starkville Community/ Golden Triangle are to help it grow by promoting home ownership and developing a team with high standards and values. Our customers are making the biggest purchase of their lives and our team is dedicated to making that dream a reality.

I strive to make my customers happy and give them the joy of home ownership while making sound financial decisions for their future.

I am originally from Chickasaw County and a proud alumna of Mississippi State University. I married Parrish Potts, a native of Corinth, in 2006 and we have a very lazy Basset Hound named Dexter . My hobbies include traveling, reading, golfing, gardening, cooking and all things related to MS State athletics. I currently serve on the Board of the Starkville Area Arts Council, Advisor to Delta Gamma Fraternity, Member of BNI GT Business Connections, Affiliate member of the Golden Triangle Realtor Association and am a member of the Starkville Country Club. Parrish and I are excited to call Starkville "Our Hometown"!
