What do you enjoy most about living in the Savannah area? My family’s roots have been in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Coastal Georgia since the 1700’s.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? Family gatherings including the Butler, Pinckney, and Haslam families are frequent and quite large with my 10 siblings. I enjoy kayaking, antiquing, walking in the woods, quail/dove hunting, running 5K’s, oyster roasts, and sitting on the dock sipping my favorite “libation or sweet tea” while catching the breeze off the Tivoli River
