BRIEF BIO:

I serve as the Chief Financial Officer of MidCountry Financial Corp., a holding company that owns two businesses that provide consumer finance services. I am married and have lived in Greenville since 2004. I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting from the University of North Florida and a Master of Accounting from the University of Florida.

CONNECTION TO THE NEXT SCHOOL

My son, Connor Jones, is in the 10th grade at The NEXT School.​

QUALIFICATIONS AND REASONS FOR SERVING ON THE NEXT SCHOOL BOARD:

I have extensive experience as a finance professional in leadership positions. My finance experience also extends to the financial services industry, where I have spent the bulk of my career. I previously served on the Board of a non-profit entity, Blue Tent, Inc., which provided services for children affected by abuse and neglect. I also served on the Finance Committee of Greenville Tech Charter High School during the 2017/2018 school year. I plan to serve on the Board of The NEXT School as a way to contribute to the school my son attends and believe I will have a positive impact on the Board through assistance with financial planning and providing analysis and input to decisions that will impact The NEXT School in the coming years.
