  1. How did you get to Greenville? I was born here in 1998, both my parents came here to attend ECU in the early 90s. I graduated from D. H. Conley and then went to school at UNCW and graduated in May of 2020. I studied Supply Chain Management and Business Analytics and began working for a large corporation in Georgia. However, I missed my hometown, home state, friends, and family. When an opportunity opened with Milestone Wealth, I had to take it!
