Covert Results, LLC
I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee watching my late father conduct investigations as a federal police officer with the railroad. He had a cool job, and I wanted to do the same thing! A Mt. Juliet High School and MTSU Alum, i decided to enter the Metro Nashville Police academy in 2007. Eventually I made it to my dream job on the 20th Judicial District Drug Task Force, but it didn’t last long. Even after a 100 kilo cocaine haul and the most successful wiretap case in Nashville, the unit dissolved.
Soon after I went through the death of my Dad all while working my tail off, being mandated to work various uniformed assignments, and subtracting my overtime pay due to bereavement. I was salty. I was just done. In March 2018 I left law enforcement and founded Covert Results LLC...https://www.covertresults.com/...a private investigations and security company in Tennessee. Four years in and I haven’t looked back.
Covert Results has doubled in size each year, now having more than 10 licensed investigators and access to more than 100 armed officers, and it continues to grow. Hard work, consistency, making good relationships, and surrounding myself with good, positive people has definitely paid off. In 2021 we launched Operation Rose... https://operationrose.org/ Our mission is to educate and create actionable solutions to preventing and combatting human trafficking in Tennessee.
In all my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family and loving my two-year-old little girl. Thus far the journey has been amazing and I can’t wait to see Covert Results and Operation Rose 10 years from now. Just not too fast!
What is a personal piece of advice (business advice/saying/quote) that you lean on and could pass on to others?
Hustle Until Your Haters Ask if Your Hiring
Best business book you’ve ever read?
I am 100% biased here, but “The Good Line” which is a true crime novel I wrote. If you want to learn about wiretaps and the cocaine business then you will love it.
One misstep you took in your business that you could caution others about?
I did not take the advice of an EO mentor who suggested I fire two people after an incident. I held on too long and it cost me time, sleep, and money.
How to you de-stress after a particularly hard day?
An Old Fashioned and maybe the hot tub
What’s something about you that would surprise everyone reading this?
Only 0.17% of the world’s population has red hair and blue eyes…it is rare.
What EO benefit has been most valuable to you during these uncertain times?
The overwhelming support of other members and the continued events to meet others.
Any exciting plans for 2022?
For this summer we will be enjoying our newly installed swimming pool! I will likely be floating with my Mac in front of me, but at least I’ll be in the pool 😬
