I am a lifelong Democrat and Executive Committee member in the Gwinnett Democratic Party. I have experience in all forms of government, having worked in local, state, and federal levels. I have experience in public health as a scientist, a certified teacher and professor, an epidemiologist, and the former director of a county health department.


As a candidate for House District 104 in 2018, I was the first Democrat in 8-years to oppose the incumbent Republican. I'm on the ballot to make sure Gwinnett County and HD104 residents have a choice when they vote in November.
