Milton Phillips

Milt_200x231My wife Mechelle and I have been in the Retreats for 3 years. We absolutely love the community, the quiet laidback lifestyle that Browning Creek offers. We have 2 daughters that are teachers, both graduates of MSU. We also have 2 precious grandsons that are the light of our lives. I am a medical device Engineer in the Flowood area specializing in spinal fusion surgery. My wife is HR Manager at the Mississippi Children’s Advocacy Center. Our primary residence is in Star, MS. We enjoy all things MSU and plan to retire to Browning Creek. That drives my passion to make Browning Creek the very best community in Oktibbeha County. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can do anything to help anyone’s experience at Browning Creek better.
