I was born at NAS Jax into a military family, and grew up in the wonderful sliver of Jacksonville that is District 4.
Like many of our residents, I have faced challenges and worked hard to persevere, overcome and achieve success. My grandfather’s words fuel my work ethic to this day, since he taught me a valuable lesson at a young age.
“We don’t quit. We get it done.”
His simple, but impactful words have carried me through times when part of me wanted to give up — but I never did. Not even when as a child gymnast, and I wanted to walk away from competition. My mom echoed his words to me and I found the power to persevere. That year, I placed third at the Junior Olympics.
Just like that day in the gymnasium, I’m here to get the job done for District 4 and the City of Jacksonville.
I’ve seen the incredible growth of our community since my early years. But, I’ve also seen the challenges some of our residents face. Join me to shift the narrative and create lasting change that uplifts our city and benefits all its residents.
I will be your voice and together we will get it done.
Yours in public service,
Listening to you
I am focused on ensuring the concerns of Southside residents are heard. Be sure to tune into my ONLINE Town Halls to engage in civil discourse with me and our District 4 neighbors. Together, we can make a difference.
As well, hear what our fellow residents have to say about me as a candidate for Jacksonville City Council.
Listen to our recent Meet the Candidate Q & A where District 4 residents joined me live online via Zoom.
My dad proudly served in the U.S. Navy for over 22 years, and retired as a Chief Petty Officer after being stationed for a decade at Mayport Naval Station.
