I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1988, with a major in Finance. I received my Real Estate Broker license in 1986 with sales experience in Knoxville, TN from 1986-1988. After graduating from UT, I became a full time broker in McMinnville. Since 1993 my emphasis has been in commercial development. I have over 20 years of experience in real estate sales, leasing, development and construction. As a local business owner of Hoover & Son Insurance and Kirby Real Estate Company for more than 15 years, I have learned that customer service is perhaps the most important part of a successful business.

I previously served serve as an Alderman and Vice Mayor for the City of McMinnville, as well as several local boards in the community. I have served on the Warren County Home Delivery board (Meals on Wheels) for over ten years where I have served several terms as Chairman.
I am happily married to Rachel Hoover Kirby and have three children, Lake, Rayah, and Isabel. I attend St. Matthews Episcopal Church and have been involved as a Mission Council member, serving as both treasurer and secretary for several terms.
