He was the campaign manager for Dr. Charlie Norwood’s campaign for Congress from 1993 to 1995. From 1995 to 1996, he was Congressman Norwood’s legislative assistant.

Sterling followed his parents’ footsteps to build his own businesses. He was the president of Sterling Political Consulting from 1996 to 2005 and provided his expertise to election campaigns in Georgia. Sterling was also the CEO and president of Sterling Seasonal Home, Inc. from 2002 to 2007.
