We moved to the beautiful state of North Carolina and instantly fell in love with the people, the different cultures, and the natural beauty. I love that everyone thinks of farming first in their yard. I fell in love with the Beaches and the Mountains and the wonderful people who love animals as much as I do. We moved to North Carolina because we wanted to raise our children in a community that we feel safe in. We love the city of Raleigh, which provides big opportunities while maintaining a small-town look and feel.
As a Paramedic Firefighter for over 25 years, putting the lives of my patients and community above anything else and serving our states and working all over the world, I took an oath to serve our country and I will continue to serve and work for you North Carolina! I am continually in awe of the human spirit, the ability of neighbors to come together to help one another. I am immensely proud of the work that I have done as a Paramedic and a Firefighter. I am thankful for the opportunity to live a life in the service of others.
My experience as a healthcare professional has given me a firsthand understanding of the problems that our communities face every day. I have seen the struggles of everyday Americans for more than 25 years on the front line and I understand the strife, as my family has faced them with me. In addition to my work, I have been involved in growing a successful startup business for our family and those who need my services. I understand the difficulties small business owners face daily. The never-ending red tape, taxes, fees, regulations, and government intrusion make it difficult for small business owners to reach their goals and profits.
We need politicians that are not scared to put the work in like I have. We need politicians who understand the struggles that the average American person faces. I am not your typical bureaucrat. I am proud that my husband and I have worked hard for our American dream. As your next Lieutenant Governor, I will work to restore the American dream for all North Carolinians.
