Why are you running for office?

With my experiences, I believe in a family-first mentality and a push for a progressive agenda here in South Carolina, making me an ideal candidate to represent District 5 in the South Carolina State Senate.

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

The biggest issue facing our community is healthcare, particularly in our rural areas. I am running so we can do right by those people and expand Medicaid here in South Carolina and drastically reduce the number of uninsured. Healthcare is a right and no one in our community should go bankrupt to stay healthy and alive.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?

I am a pragmatist who will reach across the aisle to make sure bills are passed to better all of Greenville and Spartanburg County. It’s imperative to get anything done in our state.

Who is your hero?

Dick Riley because of his lifelong commitment to education.

What are your hobbies?

Writing, cooking, and spending time with my family.

What is the most recent book you read?

“Becoming” by Michelle Obama

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?

I have a 6-year-old son named Gabriel.
