Wes joined the Carolina Family Estate Planning in 2020. We have reached a point in our practice where having an experienced Firm Administrator is essential for us to continue growing and providing top-notch service to our clients. We looked long and hard at the candidates and Wes stood out. His 11 years of law office administration with 10 of those being in Estate Planning, Estate Administration, and Elder Law were certainly a big help, and he is a pretty funny guy too.
Wes’s career path has been steady over the last 20 years. Prior to that, Wes managed restaurants, coordinated and facilitated adult educational leadership development trainings. These trainings allowed Wes to become an excellent executive and personal coach. He has worked with over 1000 people and businesses.
Over his tenure of being the administrator of estate planning law firms, he has found significant joy in knowing that what he is a part of makes a lasting impact on families and communities for this and future generations. “I know that being able to protect my family and provide for them after me is a must. I know that estate planning offers that opportunity.”
Wes has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a concentration in HR Management from Appalachian State University. He also obtained his SPHR - Senior Professional of Human Resources Certification in early 2019.
On the weekends, there is no telling where you will find him. During the cold months, he is usually up in a tree. He is an avid hunter and loves to try new recipes with his take. He would just as likely be in the mountains enjoying the lack of humidity or the deep chill of the wind, and certainly loves a quiet weekend at home. Wes is a huge sports fan. The Mountaineers of App State, UNC, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls, Las Vegas Raiders are all at the top of his list. His son Parker is at Western Carolina University and his partner Lisa and her son Lennon all make the world go round.
