As a native of eastern NC, growing up in Washington, Greenville has certainly become home for Todd and his family. He was extremely fortunate to be the last person Mr. Coffman mentored when Todd began working at Coffman’s in 1996. Twenty years later Todd is still as passionate about getting up and doing something he loves everyday. Most especially, Todd is thankful for his beautiful wife Reagan and her support in all he does and, their precious daughter Hamilton who is their greatest blessing and probably the most stylish of them all!
