Position: Owner and president of Massengill Design Build; Fuquay-Varina town commissioner including chair of the Arts Center Study Commission; president of Acute Property Management; Broker in charge at deVintage Realty; Certified Aging in Place Specialist with the National Association of Home Builders

Favorite accomplishments: “I started my home building company during a difficult time for our industry, in 2010, and sold one house that year. In 2014, Massengill Design Build had 29 closings. I’m proud of that success. I am also proud to be the youngest elected town commissioner for Fuquay-Varina, serving the citizens of our town.”

Motivation: “I enjoy building the American dream of homeownership, and am always looking for ways to be more efficient in business. I’m also looking forward to expanding my family in November, with our first child.”

Biggest challenge: “Owning a company and being involved in elected politics, while also volunteering for other organizations, can be challenging. I’m constantly juggling my schedule to fit it all in, but I love being involved and busy.”

Guiding philosophy: “Reputation is the only thing you can completely control. Work hard so you can play hard.”

Advice: “Find something you’re interested in and get involved.”
