Sims was a "Pioneer" with the telephone company. My father, in his l 90's is a retired CPA & active landlord. My mother was a professional volunteer with United Way, Southside Baptist Church, Memorial Day School.

I'm a 1986 graduate of Memorial Day School. I attended Georgia Southern, played basketball for South College, tennis for Armstrong before transferring to UGA. In 1990 while at UGA, I was fortunate enough to be on the basketball team that won UGA's first and to date only regular season Southeastern Conference Championship.
