He strongly believes in the principle: "Take care of your customers or someone else will" and uses it as motivation to offer unparalleled guidance and support to local entrepreneurs. He actively participates in community organizations, including the Surry County School Board of Education, the Yadkin Valley United Fund, the Elkin Main Street Advisory Board, and The Collaborative. When he's away from his professional roles, TJ cherishes the time spent with his family on their farm.
