Charlotte is the Business Development Manager at The Family Business Institute. She started her career as a middle school teacher before electing to stay home and raise her children. During that time, she created a catering business which allowed her to enjoy her passion of cooking while simultaneously gaining sales and marketing experience.
Once back in the workforce full time, Charlotte worked for her family owned printing and ad specialty business in Durham, NC. Little did she know one day she’d be working for a company that specializes in consulting family owned businesses!

Charlotte has three teenage children. When away from the office, she loves to play tennis, cook, exercise, boat and go to the beach – especially visiting her beloved coastal hometown of Southport, NC.
