Gayle Ballard

Marketing and Events Coordinator

I was raised in Statesville, NC and attended Peace College and East Carolina University obtaining a degree in Health and Physical Education with a concentration in Sports Medicine and an MAEd in Education.  After almost 20 years in the classroom and on the athletic fields I changed course and completed my master’s degree in School Administration at Gardner Webb University.  I spent the last 11 years of my career in education as a school administrator before retiring in 2018 and joining the team at Southeast Retirement Planners as their Marketing and Events Coordinator. 

With SRP I plan, coordinate, and manage the marketing at our firm.  Keeping our clients informed through regular newsletters and communications as well as offering informative workshops on a variety of topics is an important service we provide. 

I reside in Hickory and enjoy participating in sports, especially running.  I have completed at least 30+ half marathons. In addition to running, I enjoy spending time with my great nephews, friends, and my fur babies.
