My family consists of three beloved rescue dogs. I am a 6-year brain tumor survivor and have endured 19 surgeries and procedures over a 5-year period. As a result of complications from my tumor treatment, I’ve accepted my existing partial facial paralysis and other deficits as a reminder that obstacles are opportunities for personal growth and development. In addition, I’m blessed to say that I am Brain Tumor free!
I sat on the Board for the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation and have recently stepped down to take on an employment roll with the Foundation to assist in planning events and working with sponsors and donors to raise money to fund research to find a cure for brain tumors. I am also an advocate for mental health awareness and brain tumor support and donate my time to animal rescue and adoption services.
As a former resident of Fayette County, GA, downtown Atlanta, Buckhead, Brookhaven, and Southern California, I have experienced both the luxuries and tribulations of city and suburban living. Creating a community with quality development that provides balance in people’s work-play lives will attract businesses and residents for years to come. Braselton deserves to be a community where citizens can travel by foot, bike, or golf cart to our favorite shops, restaurants, trails, and parks/green spaces. Braselton is a place we all call home and with thoughtful planning will be home for generations to follow.
I am asking for your vote as the District 1 Town Council Representative. A vote for me ensures that I will always look at for the best interests of the residents and community of Braselton!
