Hi, I’m Ronnie!

I was born in Boone, NC, but grew up just outside of Raleigh in Henderson, NC. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and made my way back up the mountain in 1995 to receive my teaching certification from ASU. Prior to joining the Tar Heel team, I gained extensive knowledge of this industry, as I spent 10 years under homes working for Terminix. So many things attracted to me Tar Heel, including the opportunity to help homeowners, work beside my closest friends, and help others grow all while learning new things every day.

Since starting my journey here I have made great strides. I began in sales as a Certified Field Inspector, designing systems for our customers. I then moved over to our service department starting out as a Service Technician. In 2014 my teammates awarded me with the Goodwill Ambassador Award, and in 2015 I was promoted from Service Technician to Service Supervisor and awarded the 2015 Service Technician of the Year Award. Since 2017, I have been leading a team of amazing service technicians and service coordinators as Service Manager.

When I am not helping customers improve their home, I am at home with my wife and animals. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Jessica, for about 20 years and we care for nearly 15 rescue pets on our farm; we have dogs, cats, chickens and pygmy goats. I also enjoy reading and watching movies, and love all eras of history.

I enjoy providing our customers with WOW! service and I’m looking forward to meeting with you and solving any concerns you may have!

Hi, I’m Brittany!

I’m the friendly voice you will hear when it’s time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. I grew up in the Triad area and attended college at UNC-Charlotte where I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. After college I relocated to back to my hometown. My previous work experience in the restaurant industry equipped me with the knowledge to ensure our customers are receiving nothing less than top notch service. In my spare time you can find me on the hiking trail with my three dogs staying active. I also enjoy various types of art and painting.

I look forward to helping you with all of your service needs!

Hi, I’m Skyi!

 

I’m the friendly voice you hear on the phone while scheduling your service appointment! I was born and raised in Thomasville, NC and now live in High Point. Before joining the Tar Heel team I provided excellent customer service as an assistant manager at Claire’s as well as working in some other sales and customer service positions prior to that. I have also worked as a caretaker and child care provider following the Childhood Early Development and Parenting training I received in high school.

 

Due to my husband working for the company I have gotten a chance to witness all of the wonderful work this company does for its employees, its customers, and the community as well as  spend time with all of the amazing people that make it all happen. After watching my husband grow and thrive with this company I decided I wanted to become an official part of the Tar Heel family.

 

When I’m not working I love spending time with my wonderful husband of over 10 years, Ian,  our 3 beautiful children, Alexis, David, and Madison, and our lovely lab and furbaby, Bella. You can almost always find me in the outdoors: camping, fishing, four-wheeling, you name it! I also enjoy coffee and reading a good mystery book.

 

I look forward to speaking with you regarding your home!

Adam Canter

Hi, I’m Adam!

 

I came to Tar Heel Basement Systems from one of our sister branches in Virginia with an ample amount of experience with masonry, basement waterproofing, foundation repair, and crawlspace encapsulation. I also worked in plumbing and HVAC for a time prior to that. My previous background has given me the proper tools I need when it comes to servicing our systems and ensuring that everything continues to run smoothly.

 

I love working at Tar Heel because the company allows for a lot of great opportunities and I genuinely enjoy the culture and environment. However, when I’m not working, I love spending time with my wife, Kelly and our 2 dogs, Zoe and Zera. I also enjoy spending some of my free time working on old cars.

 

I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Eric Townsend

Hi, I’m Eric!

 

Not only am I employed by Tar Heel but I also happen to be a former customer. After experiencing firsthand what a great and necessary service was being provided I decided I wanted the opportunity to do the same for others with a company that I knew I could trust. Before coming aboard at Tar Heel I did some work putting up tents, and constructing stages and dance floors. Luckily many of the skills I learned in that line of work, such as surveying sites and planning for unexpected scenarios helped me transition smoothly and quickly into my role here at Tar Heel.

 

I have a degree in Recreation Management and a CDL Passenger Endorsement which I still make use of by driving buses and limousines as a side business. In my spare time you can find me spending time with my wife, our 3 beautiful daughters, and our many animals. I also enjoy detailing vehicle sound systems, and playing friendly games of basketball and volleyball on occasion.

 

I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Luke!

 

Over the years I have acquired a wealth of construction experience as well as become very familiar with crawlspaces during my time working with DirecTV. I love working with customers face-to-face, working to find the best solution to improve the life and health of their home. I joined the Tar Heel family because I was seeking a guaranteed opportunity for growth and I loved the positive energy that I experience every day here.

 

When I’m not diagnosing your home’s waterproofing and foundation needs I love spending my time outdoors, fishing and kayaking. I also enjoying woodworking and spending time with my wonderful pets.

 

I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Matt!

Before joining Tar Heel Basement Systems I worked 15 years in the plumbing and gas pipe industry. My experience in those fields gave me the base knowledge needed to become a waterproofing, foundation and service specialist. I have a beautiful wife, Marie, and 4 wonderful children; Brent, Blake, Chris and Lynn. When I am not working or spending time with my family, I love fishing, golfing, martial arts, racing and good music.

I look forward to meeting you and helping with all of your basement, crawlspace and foundation issues.

Shane Inglis

Hi, I’m Shane!

 

Prior to joining the Tar Heel Basement Systems team I was a vehicle operator for the U.S. Air Force. I also have my OSHA forklift certification and I’m currently on track to earn my Associates in Applied Science. I came to Tar Heel on the recommendation of a friend because I was looking for a new experience but I stayed because I instantly loved the amazing team and the incredible work culture.

 

When I’m not working to find permanent solutions to all of your waterproofing and foundation needs I love spending time with my wonderful family. I have a beautiful wife, 2 kids and a 3rd on the way, and 2 dogs. I also enjoy watching the NFL and using wood to build things.

 

I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Tommy Boswell

Hi, I’m Tommy!

 

I am originally from Roanoke Rapids, NC but have moved around the Carolinas and Virginia quite a bit before coming to the wonderful city of Winston-Salem. I’ve been working in customer service for over 10 years now and I’ve always striven to provide my customers with a top-notch experience, making me a perfect fit for the Tar Heel family. What drew me to Tar Heel was the company culture and GoodWorks initiatives such as blood drives, charity 5Ks, etc. Though I’ve never done this kind of work before I love the challenge and learning how to overcome the obstacles.

 

When I’m not providing customers with a healthier home, I love spending time with my wonderful fiance and our adorable but frustrating cats and making time to travel back to SC for our loving family and amazing friends. I also enjoy watching wrestling and I’ve been a musician for over a decade and enjoy playing my guitar, bass, and most recently, my accordion.

 

I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”
