I am a community leader and volunteer, animal lover, Mom, nature enthusiast, and a former litigation attorney. I have a B.A. in Public Policy from Hamilton College and a J.D. from Duke University School of Law. Before becoming a member of the NC Senate, I worked at the Ada Jenkins Center, a local non-profit, and was a foster parent with a local animal rescue group.
I know that many of the critical policy issues we face are decided at the State level. I've seen changes in North Carolina that are not good for families, small businesses, schools and the environment. Because of my desire to continue to bring positive change to my community, I am running for re-election to the North Carolina Senate, District 41, representing the people of Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mt. Island Lake, Steele Creek, Pineville and S. Ballantyne. I will continue to fight for affordable healthcare, common sense gun safety reform, clean drinking water, public education and tax policies that are fair for working families.
My life exemplifies my commitment to hard work, the value of a quality education, and being a voice of reason and respect. I believe in the importance of taking personal responsibility, investing in the future and cultivating an inclusive community. In a time of political discord, I offer solutions that bring people together and make positive change for the people of the district.
