Outside Nexsen Pruet

I'm very competitive and when it comes to my clients' needs ...

I play to win.

I am originally from Hendersonville, NC where I grew up loving soccer, volleyball, and tennis. I also enjoy playing the piano and have been since age 6. For my last few years of high school, I  lived in Lexington, NC, the "BBQ capital of the South". 

Before deciding to attend law school, I actually applied for culinary school - ultimately my passion for the practice of law outweighed my knack for conjuring up meals in the kitchen. But, don't get me wrong, I can still cook up a mean baked ziti.

In my down time, I enjoy cheering on the Hokies and managing my fantasy football teams. Here's to a great season!
