The greatest reward is seeing clients achieve greater levels of success and watching as collaboration results in better companies, better employers, better company culture, and better financial results.

Meet Chuck's Family

The Cooper family is originally from a small farming town in central Illinois. That was their home for years – that is, until they took a vacation in 1999 to Charlotte, NC. They fell in love with the city, the opportunities the city offered, and the warmer weather, and they decided to put down new roots. For 19 years, they have lived in south Charlotte.

Today, Debbie owns and operates Sweet Boutique Bakery in Charlotte. 

Tyler and Christy blessed us with our first Grandson, Elliot Quinn and another baby boy: Coen Shepherd. Tyler is a Pastor on staff at Spotswood Baptist Church in Fredericksburg, VA and Christy started up her own Pediatric Occupational Therapy practice: Kaleidoscope O.T.
