He began his career as a network administrator at Desoto Systems. In 2003, he joined Youth Villages as an information technology specialist. As the organization grew, Palmer assumed more responsibilities, moving into the IT manager position in 2006 and then advancing to assistant director of IT in 2008. Palmer became the director of information technology for the Briarcrest Christian School, the largest private school in the Memphis area, in 2013. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in management of information systems from the University of Memphis and a Master of Business Administration from the McAfee School of Business at Union University.
While working previously at Youth Villages, Palmer met his wife, Jan, who most recently served as the Director of the Rose Center for Girls. The couple has two children, Adyson and Noah.
