I am married and we have six adult children and six grandchildren. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but I live in Carthage, North Carolina. Since moving to NC 19 years ago, I continued to be an advocate for human rights. Equity, inclusion, diversity, healthcare, education and civic infrastructure will always be my goal as I fight for us all.

The district needs a voice that represents all of its citizens. Community watch programs are needed throughout the district. Change can not be just a word, but must be in our actions. Change should be to help and not hurt others.

I believe in our Constitution and the Rule of Law. Rights GRANTED should NEVER be rights LOST.

Everyday brings us a new challenge. Be prepared to handle whatever it is because tomorrow comes sooner than later.
