I was born in Myrtle Beach and raised by very hard working parents who taught me the values of a strong work ethic.
After graduating college I moved back home to work with my father in our family business. In order to prepare and train me for my future role in the company, I continued my education by completing the Anheuser-Busch Marketing Management Development program. This experience, along with my training in various departments of our company, gave me the skills needed to be strategic, proactive, and rational throughout my career.
My involvement with Better Brands, as well as being a small business owner, I understand the issues that local businesses face on a daily basis.
I am caring and empathetic and I value the importance of listening to the needs and concerns of others. I will always strive to do what is best for the citizens of Myrtle Beach and will do all I can to make our community stronger as mayor of Myrtle Beach.
My husband and best friend, Brown Bethune, and I are blessed with three beautiful daughters, two adorable grandsons and one amazing son-in-law. We treasure our time with them all as well as with our five dogs.
MY ENTIRE ADULT LIFE I HAVE BEEN ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH VARIOUS CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS AND SERVING ON BOARDS. I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN GIVING BACK TO THIS COMMUNITY THAT HAS GIVEN SO MUCH TO ME.
