"People over Politics"

I'm a sixth-generation Tennessean, and I'm proud to hail from the Volunteer State.  My parents, now in their mid-80s, are life-long residents of Haywood County. My husband and I have been married for 30 years, and we have two wonderful sons. Our oldest is in medical school in Nashville, and our youngest, a graduate of Sewanee, The University of the South, is now pursuing a Master's Degree in Public Policy at the University of Chicago.


I am a graduate of Haywood High School, Tennessee State University, and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. For the past nineteen years, I have served as the Chief Executive Officer of Golden Circle Insurance Agency, a spinoff of Golden Circle Life Insurance Company, the company my grandfather founded in the 1950s. I’m also a licensed funeral director in Tennessee, and through both my personal and professional experiences, I am able to understand the issues and challenges our neighbors and fellow residents encounter daily.


I was inspired to run in large part because of my clients. I’ve shared in my clients’ despair when preexisting conditions or personal finances made them ineligible for health insurance coverage. I grew increasingly frustrated seeing folks forced to live with medical and health uncertainties, not being able to afford doctor visits, medical treatments, or life-saving medications – all because the Tennessee Legislature refused to expand Medicaid.


I decided to turn my frustration and heartbreak into action and became a candidate for the Tennessee House of Representatives. I’m running because loving our neighbors means advocating for them—even, and especially, the most vulnerable populations.


I'm running because I believe we must put people over politics.
