I am humbled to be able to serve as NC-11 District Chair. I believe NC-11 has the grit and determination to lead North Carolina Democrats to victory in the coming years. As some of you may know, I am an environmental engineer who stepped up to fight the Republicans who are destroying our democracy, picking the pockets of our poor and working class, and stealing our most precious natural resources. As an environmental engineer working in water and wastewater infrastructure design for rural municipalities, my success depends on my ability to build and maintain relationships with diverse stakeholders, including elected officials, city and county managers, plant operators, and contractors. My husband and I also own and operate a small auto repair business in Arden. Our ability to survive as small business owners depends on our ability to plan, communicate, and take care of our customers and employees. I believe my lived experiences will help me serve you.

As your NC-11 Chair, I will fight for the poor and working class, I will work to protect our environment, and, more than anything, I will organize day and night to bring people together to defend our democracy. We have a long road ahead. We must raise money, recruit and support candidates up and down the ballot, and communicate clearly and effectively about the ongoing changes to our election laws to ensure that no person is denied their right to vote. We must ensure that our county parties and precincts have the resources, information, and support they need to do the hard and necessary work of organizing in every community. And we must do all of this in coordination with our state party, the NC-11 board, county leadership, and hardworking volunteers. 

Those that know me know that you can count on me to show up, engage, listen, collaborate, and work hard. With your support, I am committed to serving in this position until we get the job done.
