During a special election on October 11, I was elected to fill the unexpired term of the previous Register of Deeds. I was sworn into office on January 3, 2023. I have been in public service for over 30 years and am honored to serve the citizens of Beaufort County as your Register of Deeds.

I believe it is never too late to set goals and strive to reach them. After many interruptions during my educational journey, I finally bit the bullet, stepped into the classroom, and received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a major in Computer Information Systems in May 2021 through the University of Mount Olive.

As a conservative, I stepped into the Office of the Register of Deeds to provide the best possible service to the public while being mindful of every tax dollar spent. Since taking office, I have saved several thousand dollars in processes, contracts, and equipment. I have also implemented a Recording Notification Service, free to the public, to hopefully deter fraudulent activity and give citizens a sense of protection. I am working diligently to update our processes, forms, and equipment.

I am happy to report that we will soon be able to accept debit and credit cards. Card readers will be installed in the near future. After this installation, our online services will be enhanced. The public will also be able to order birth, death, and marriage certificates online. This will help speed up the process for those out of town or state that need these vitals in a timelier manner.

It is my goal to add more convenient services for the citizens of Beaufort County. If I may be of assistance to you, please contact me at 252-946-2323 or via email at [email protected]. If you need additional information, please visit our website at
