Why are you running for office?

I am running for office as a mom of four small children and a public health researcher because I believe I can represent our community and advocate for much needed changes here in Georgia.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?

The biggest issues facing our community are caused by lack of government investment in public services here. We have no Medicaid expansion and we have a maternal mortality crisis. We have weak supports for mental health programs within our public health system. Georgia has tied together our high maternal mortality with a legislature which is passing anti-choice legislation. Overall, we are not hearing our constituents’ healthcare needs and we are not addressing them.

Who is your hero?

I’ll go Anthony Fauci.

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?

None of my houseplants talk. I have lots of kiddos, and two very large fluffy cats.

How can our readers get involved in your campaign?

We’d love volunteers to make phone calls and make texts. We are always, always appreciative of donations through the Actblue (
