Why Am I Running For HD 104

I am committed to promoting and supporting policies and inclusive legislation that will bring the residents of Gwinnett County together, not divide us. Decisions must be based on data, no party affiliation. 

About Me

My Background

I am a lifelong Democrat and Executive Committee member in the Gwinnett Democratic Party. I was the 2018 Democratic candidate for the GA House District 104. I was the, first Democrat in 8-years to oppose the incumbent Republican. Although I lost by only 1,700

votes, I received 47% of the votes cast in a very tight race. No one thought the race would be that close.

Affiliations

In 2018, I was endorsed by the Gwinnett Education Association and the Georgia Education Association. I was a founding member and past president of the Gwinnett Federation of Democratic Women. I helped build this organization into a vibrant and active association. I am a graduate of the Gwinnett County Police Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association and the Citizen’s Emergency Response Team (CERT). 

Education and Work Experience

I am an epidemiologist and educator. I have a Masters of Science (MS) Degree in Epidemiology/Public Health from Columbia University School of Public and a Masters of Science in Sociology and Applied Social Research from Florida State University, School of Social Sciences and Public Policy. I’ve worked in public health and epidemiology at the CDC, in Georgia, Florida, Maine, New Jersey, New York, and in Guatemala.
