What inspired you to run for office? “I have always been an activist for Women’s rights and local environmental issues. During Georgia’s last legislative session the legislature passed (but barely) a 6 week abortion ban with the exception being if a police report is filed against an abuser. This is an egregious attack on our basic civil liberties and right to privacy. Quickly following will be an attack on the LGBTQ+ community under the guise of religious freedom. We cannot allow this to happen. Our country cannot continue to slide backwards. I knew I had to stand up and do something. In addition, as a small business owner with an established career in the TV entertainment industry I quickly became aware how these legislations were adversely affecting me and my entire business community. My only choice was to run and win.”

What are you fighting for? “I’m fighting for everyone. I’m fighting for myself and my children and you and your children. I believe this fight goes across the aisle. I’m fighting for every marginalized group who feels their voices are not being heard by the current elected. I believe that government does not have a place in making decisions for individuals that should be made privately and with their doctor. We need to be protected and free, the opposite of which is what is happening in my state.”

What do you want voters to know about you? “I am a mom, a wife, a small business owner. I am not running because I want to, but because I feel I have to. I am also a huge proponent of self care, and when I can sneak away, I am out trail riding with my horse Ginger or hiding in the barn chatting with my donkeys.”

Best way to get involved? “I am running a top race against an openly anti-choice Republican incumbent. My first request is please contribute. It is the money that will help get me access to all of the communities in my district, awesome swag and pay for a campaign staff. Secondly, share my info! Name recognition is key. The more I’m out there the better chance I’ll have at flipping the seat. Phone calls and canvassing are extremely helpful in a local race. It’s all about name recognition.”

“Every dollar you donate gets us closer to having a State Senator who cares about ALL of the people of District 17. We all live together, work together, and should be represented wholly. My mission is to protect our rights as individuals, fortify our public education system, expand access to healthcare, and make decisions that increase the safety of our families. As a member Georgia’s small business community, I believe it is key that we have legislators who not only understand what it takes to run a small business, but who will ensure our tax dollars are not wasted fighting for unconstitutional legislation. Chip in today so that together, we can build lasting change for every Georgia family.”
