As the City of Hardeeville continues to flourish, the Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department is poised to meet the demands of a growing need for more recreational programs, events, and amenities. As the City's PRT Director, I am honored to serve alongside our citizens in Hardeeville while creating lasting impacts to our community. Utilizing my 27 plus years of experience in the field of Recreation, I have been able to strategically plan for our departments growth including short and long term master planning, facilitating project upgrades to the Richard Gray Complex, acquiring a 1330 acre conservation park and overseeing our soon to be completed 40,000 square feet Recreation Center. I look forward to overseeing the departments continued growth while planning for our future. I am driven by service to my community, my passion for the field and providing opportunities for our community to enhance their quality of life. As a Certified Parks and Recreation Professional my vision for this community is compelled by the four pillars of CARE: Creating economic impacts, Advancing conservation, Rejuvenating health and wellness, and Enhancing the quality of life.
