Bio

I am a mother and a wife of a U.S. Air Force Veteran and come from a family where all branches of the military are represented. I am a daughter of educators and grand-daughter of the first Black principal in Cape Cod, MA. My grandfather was an instructor for the Tuskegee Airmen and both of my grandmothers were "Rosie Riveters." I come from a family of service and a family of firsts. I understand what it means to serve, to work hard and to take care of those around us.

​ I also am a former attorney, turned business leader-turned small business owner. I am a champion for compassionate change and a servant leader. I am many things, but most of all, I am human, just like you.

​ And, like you, my family has been deeply impacted by the pandemic, loss of income and work, virtual learning with kids at home, healthcare costs, ongoing social and racial unrest, and the growing political divide in our nation. I am fueled by deep care, concern, and desire to help heal our communities and bridge the divide among us. I stand in the gap. This includes focusing on civil discourse while growing jobs, ensuring a thriving economy and a living wage, closing the wealth gap, improving transportation and infrastructure, and supporting our teachers and schools, as well as creating equity, inclusion and access for all, just to name a few.

​ While these are big issues, I firmly believe we can achieve them if we work together. Now is the time for us to join efforts and connect across shared interests so that, together, we can discover what is possible when we bridge the divide. Whether I am rolling up my sleeves to help write voter reminder post cards for elections, hosting a life skills program for local high school students or volunteering at school, I know that the change we all want requires that we each take action. "One Community. One Commonwealth." is more than just a saying. It is a vision for where we all can go, if we care enough to go together. I have a unique gift of being a bridge-builder; of bringing people together who have differing perspectives and finding common ground with courtesy and respect. I know how to get things done. It's not politics as usual. It's humans first and families first as we build a better District 50 together. Because, together, anything is possible.
