After 18 years as a Retail Sales Manager/District Manager I traded my career in for “the good life”. Choosing to be a stay-at-home mom to my son Jake (now a teenager). During that time period I was introduced to the Tennessee Christian Chamber of Commerce of which I have been a supporting member since 2010. My passion for the organization has led me to serve in various supporting roles such as Chamber Ambassador, Membership Director, Public Relations and Board Member.
I am now honored to serve as the Tennessee Christian Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Ofﬁcer. I have a true passion for serving others and building relationships. I am motivated and inspired by being around people, so I’m always pleased to make new connections. Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com anytime. Talk to you soon!

Jonathan grew up in Athens, Georgia for 10 years (Go Bulldogs!), and then moved to Raleigh, North Carolina for the next 13 years. He went to North Carolina State University and received a degree in Business Management- Finance. After working several part time jobs through college, Jonathan received a full-time position at SureTech Assembly as an Operations Manager. Afterwards, he moved to Birmingham, AL to attend and later receive his M.B.A. from Samford University. This led to a Sales Manager position with Southern Restoration, which then led him to start a new branch here in Nashville, TN in 2011.
By 2013, Jonathan then decided to start a new company called Music City Dream Cars where you can rent any exotic car by the day. After 5 years of running the company, Jonathan felt God leading him to more of a ministry opportunity and decided to accept the position of Director of Development & Branding at Lighthouse Christian School. Lighthouse is an incredible school, serving the community of Antioch while offering high quality, affordable education. LCS has twice been ranked the most diverse school in Tennessee.
Aside from fast cars, Jonathan loves anything competitive or adrenaline pumping. He has played just about every sport you can think of competitively and also enjoys snowboarding and playing the piano. Most importantly though, he puts his faith in Jesus Christ and believes through Him you can do all things.
The presence of his wife and children in his life has made a major impact on his faith journey and relationship with God. In his short time with the Timothy Hill organization, God has paved a new path for him with a much greater purpose.
