I moved to Norcross in 2006 and have never looked back! Living in Gwinnett County and being surrounded by so many different people and cultures is important to me. I began acting and volunteering at the Lionheart Theatre Company, attending city council meetings, joined a park planning committee and even worked as a monster at Netherworld Haunted House! Ironically, while acting at Netherworld, I met my now-husband, Nick, who was (and still is) a firefighter. His skill, confidence, and desire to serve were all so impressive to me – and they still are.
In 2013, Nick and I were married and the following year we moved to Lawrenceville and welcomed our daughter into our family. Our daughter is now 4, starts Pre-K this fall, and enjoys dancing, gymnastics, and making up stories with her toys. That kid is a total joy to be around! We also have two dogs, both rescues, and a guinea pig named Minnie.
My life is in Gwinnett County. I have friends and family here; this is where I am choosing to raise my daughter. I want the best for her – and for every child in our area – and that’s why I am running for Georgia Senate District 45.
