It has been an honor to build a career around serving others and representing my community. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from NCSU & Master of Public Administration from ECU. I am people-centered public servant with a belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive in our great county.
At the core of a successful community is affording all its members the opportunity to have their basic needs met. Affordable housing in all 12 muncipalities is my number one priority. I support government-led initiatives, offering tax incentives to developers who build affordable housing, and increasing funding for affordable housing programs. It is important to me that citizens can afford to live in the county where they work and serve. I also want those who are aging in place and on a fixed income to be able to thrive.
Access to health care impacts everyone. The benefits are numerous because of improved health outcomes, creation of jobs, and other economic benefits. Increased services made possible through Medicaid expansion will help more county residents get the needed care. We also have community partners expanding their support in areas, including maternal and behavioral health. I will advocate for a variety of resources to support increased access.
Public schools provide education to students from all walks of life, regardless of their race, gender, or economic status. Strong public schools contribute significantly to the growth and development of future generations. I support public schools because they are integral to addressing social inequalities. I am also a former adult high school and GED instructor. Supporting our local community college is important to me.
