Born and raised in Talbot County, I am passionate about helping others realize their potential through encouragement and empowerment.

Raised in Trappe by my grandmother, I attended Talbot County Public Schools from kindergarten through graduation. From my waterman grandfather, I was schooled in the critical role our seafood and agriculture industry play. From my grandmother, a domestic worker, I learned that with hard work, integrity and faith, anything is possible.

In my work developing business and community partnerships I earned a successful track record based on sound policies and innovative strategies. Through partnerships with private and public stakeholders, I’ve championed education, entrepreneurship, and expansion of existing businesses as key economic drivers. I spearheaded development of a Regional Technology Park, and the mid-shore’s first technology incubator.

My personal and professional commitment to Talbot County is evidenced in my family background, career, and community service. I am running as a candidate to champion education, business and economic development and environmental strategies.
