Why are you running for this office?
That experience of leading our nation’s best and brightest from a very young age and having the great opportunity to sit at the table to help develop budgets, complete missions, and tackle tough issues helped shape my views on what it means to be a leader. The skills that shaped my views on leadership, service, & commitment have prepared me for public service to Virginia Beach. I’m running to serve the residents in Virginia Beach because I believe in its bright future. We have complex challenges ahead and I look forward to serving the city that raised and nurtured me by embracing our diverse and growing population so that Virginia Beach will be seen as a leader in the Commonwealth.
After 20 years of service in the Air Force, I knew the best place to retire from the military and start my next chapter as a tech entrepreneur was back home in Virginia Beach. With the creation of the new 97th House District, I am stepping forward once again to continue serving the community I love. As a delegate, I will fight to protect reproductive freedom, support public education, help other veterans transition into high-tech career fields, and support common-sense gun safety solutions.
