Extending from Gadsden to Ohatchee along state highway 77 near Interstate 59, Neely Henry Lake is the second reservoir in a chain of six on the Coosa River that begins with Weiss Lake on the Georgia border. Generally a river-run lake, Neely Henry fans out into open water near the dam. Neely Henry Lake covers more than 11,000 acres with almost 350 miles of shoreline in Etowah, St. Clair and Calhoun counties.
Located between Weiss Lake and Logan Martin Lake, Neely Henry is one of the best-kept fishing secrets in Alabama. Largemouth bass and spotted bass are most often the targets of anglers on Neely Henry, where plumpness for both varieties is close to the top in the state. There's a great supply of bass on Neely Henry eager to be caught. The lake has excellent populations of both largemouth and spotted bass, as well as bluegill and other sunfish, crappie, catfish, striped bass, hybrid and white bass, and Neely Henry ranked third statewide in the percent of successful anglers per trip. Alabama Power maintains three public access sites on the lake.
Henry Neely Lake is a part of the Alabama Bass Trail, which will hold a series of tournaments beginning next year and crown the state's first official bassing champion.
The Neely Henry Lake Association is an all-volunteer group of people who live on, or sometimes simply enjoy, the lake and have formalized their efforts to protect both the quality and the quantity of the water and promote safe use of the lake. The Association supports the Renew Our Rivers project and partners with Alabama Power to create new fish habitats.

I'm proud of the many honors and awards I've received from my peers. I was named St. Clair Realtor of the Year in 2010, and I am immediate past president of the St. Clair Association of Realtors. I've been the Alabama state winner from the Virginia Allen Young Careerist Program.

Service is one of the most important things to me, and that means service to my profession as well as my clients.
Building relationships begins with the community, and it's a pleasure for me to be of service to the community. I work closely with the Business and Professional Women's Club and I host workshops at the state Girl Scouts Leadership Conference. I've lived here on the lake for eight years now, you just get really close to people. It's a close-knit community. We are a great community to live in and that makes it a very easy sell. It's so close to Birmingham and Atlanta, but we still have a real small-town feel.
