I’m 40 years old and have lived in Johnston County my whole life. I have a twin sister, Kelley, and am the daughter of Don Norris and Barbara O’Dell Norris. I have two sons, Cody (19) and Tyler (11). I am the manager of Maxey Insurance in Tishomingo. I joined the Tishomingo band boosters in 2014 and have been secretary of that group for 3 years. I am also involved with the Tishomingo Community JOM Program, which has been chosen as the Chickasaw Nation Exemplary JOM Program for 2019-2020. I love living in Johnston County. It’s such a beautiful place, but it can be easy to forget that when you see it every day. I try to give back when ever possible, and work hard at letting people know how awesome it is to be here and all the things we have to offer!

Misty Chapman

Board Member

Misty Chapman is a co-owner of ROK Realty, located in Tishomingo. ROK Realty has been named the fastest growing Real Estate Company in Southern Oklahoma. Misty would like to think that is because of the emphasis her team puts on marketing themselves and the area that she resides. Misty was raised in Tishomingo. She is a Chickasaw citizen and has worked with many organizations within the Nation to help get grants for Wilson School and a new sports complex. Most rewarding was getting the JOM program started in Wilson for the Native American students and Misty has worked within the casino industry through the national level.
She moved to Wilson, OK in 1997 and raised three children there while being very active with their interests such as sports and leadership programs. She was the President of the Parent/Teacher Volunteer Organization, President of the All-Sports Club, Little League Secretary, Bus Driver, Girl Scout Leader, Basketball and Softball Leader and she was the playwright and costume designer for all 14 plays held by the elementary school each year. Misty has spent the last several years doing project development like assisting with building new residential and commercial developments in both Carter County and the Broken Bow area. She has recently moved back to Tishomingo and is ready to support our community by assisting others in seeing Tishomingo grow! She has great networking and social skills and is not afraid to take on large tasks and accepts challenges with a positive attitude. Misty is great at getting others involved and believes that with fresh eyes and insight we can put Tishomingo on the destination map!

Ezekiel Walker

Board Member

Ezekiel Walker is Chickasaw and was born and raised in Mill Creek, Oklahoma. For the past 17 years, Ezekiel has been living in Santa Monica, California, where he works as a T.V. Producer. Ezekiel has always loved Tishomingo, and even at a young age, he spoke of his desire to be an entrepreneur and invest in Tishomingo. In 2015, Ezekiel and his partner saw the rental housing need in Tishomingo, and they turned that into an opportunity to renovate and build. They now own a couple of renovated bungalows and newly built duplexes in walking distance to Main Street. Though 2020 has been a tough year, it has allowed Ezekiel to work from home, and he has been doing that where he feels most at home, Tishomingo. Ezekiel believes that Tishomingo’s possibilities are endless, and that’s what lead him to open Mulberry Wine Bar + Retail. Mulberry is his take on things he’s learned from living in Los Angeles, traveling to other countries, and at the same time keeping things local. Ezekiel is excited for what the future holds for Tishomingo, and he’s motivated to open more businesses and build more housing. Ezekiel would feel honored to serve on the Chamber, “I’d love to be apart of this awesome team of people. They are doing good things for Tishomingo”. He says he believes he can offer fresh ideas and motivate new entrepreneurs to bring their business to Tishomingo.
