About

I’m a Chowan County native, raised by two tireless community advocates. As a Workforce Development professional, I have worked for the past five years to enhance the skills and preparedness of our emerging and existing labor pool in ten counties of Northeastern N.C. to meet the immediate and future demands of businesses. As a former educator and mom of three young daughters, I have a lot at stake in ensuring our region experiences economic growth. We need agents of change and a generational shift in our elected leaders so that they are truly representative of our citizenry and interests. My legislative priorities are centered around affordable, quality healthcare, universal access to education from birth to adulthood, business sustainability and expansions that offer livable wages, clean water, air and energy, and sustainable infrastructure. Comprehensive and innovative approaches are key to exploiting our strengths and overcoming our challenges. Join me in working to transform the counties of House District 1 (Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington) through your vote on November 3rd. I look forward to serving you
