I am involved with the Greater Chamber of Commerce, the Morning Rotary Club, and Providence Ministries. Dalton Funeral Home also provides a meal and entertainment to Whitfield Place each quarter. I especially enjoy when the Rotary Club helps with Special Olympics.
What are some of your favorite places to travel?
I love to combine traveling with a bike trip. One of my favorite trips was to Bar Harbor, Maine. I biked Acadia National Park for several days and enjoyed the serenity and beauty the park had to offer.
Who has served as your mentor?
I have known my mentor for most of my life and he is Mr. J.B. Whitfield. Mr. Whitfield taught me lessons on how to run a business; but, most importantly Mr. Whitfield taught me to treat all people the same…with respect and dignity.
What lessons did you learn from your family about being successful?
I was always taught to follow my passion. It takes a lot of hard work to start a business, but when it is your passion in life, you enjoy every second of the journey.
What has been your biggest triumph?
My biggest triumph was when I was able to start my own funeral home. I have been in the funeral business for over 25 years, and it was extremely gratifying to be able to start my own funeral home and help families.
