Background and Experience

Professionally I’ve worked as an insurance sales and operations leader for more than 20 years; most recently as a relationship director for a trade organization supporting the industry. My clients are leaders in all of the nation’s major insurance and financial services firms. Personally, I’ve spent the last several years as an ally and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community through my volunteer efforts with PFLAG Charlotte. I’ve also been active in my Democratic precinct, including serving as Vice Chair in 2019 and Precinct Chair earlier this year.

Reason for Running

I’m a service leader. I’m  most actualized and productive when I’m serving and driving positivity in a community. My kids grew up in Huntersville, and now that they are older, it’s time to give back to THIS community.  I’ve heard many express concern over the rate of development in Huntersville and how it might alter the character of our town.  We have struggled to keep up with the growth of this community in terms of roads, schools, city services, and affordable housing.  We need new ideas, new opinions, and new leaders in Huntersville.  My professional career and advocacy work have prepared me to serve our town by uplifting the voices of our community and providing positive outcomes for our town.
