I am a wife, mother and a Lynner that wants to see our city truly embrace its diversity and include the community in the decisions that affect us all.

 

I was born and raised in this city, yet come from the part of Lynn that has not been heard, so I learned how important it is to listen. As the daughter of a single mother who struggled to make ends meet, I know the importance of having someone who understands what it's like for working families and how important it is to make sure they have a seat at the table. I come from the part of Lynn that has not been seen, so I have learned to make issues that affect the majority of our community more visible. Issues like police reform, gaps in education, affordable housing, racial inequity. All issues affecting a large portion of our city and that need to be addressed urgently and with unequivocal commitment. 

I come from the part of Lynn that was the hardest hit during the Pandemic, yet least helped.  As a soldier, having served eleven years in the Army National Guard with deployments to Iraq and Baghdad I understood that I was there to serve for the entire country, not some. As your At- large Councilor, I plan to continue that commitment. My service to this country, and specifically to Lynn did not end with my military service. I earned my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood education  while deployed, and upon returning home, I became a homeowner in Lynn and opened a childcare service which I owned and operated for six years. Ensuring that our most valuable members of the community, our children, were loved and cared for. 

My Family

Before running for office I had to have the support of my family. My husband and son were ready to support me and my mom was most excited to hear the news. I also have an older sister, younger sister, and an older brother who are in my corner as well and willing to do what they can to help me run this race successfully. My mother is a single parent. She worked hard every day to make sure we had a roof over our heads and food to eat. My family is very close and we speak to each other almost every day. My mom is my number 1 fan and my older sister always expresses how proud she is of me. We all attended Lynn public schools and have lived in this city for the bigger part of our lives.
