What do you want the citizens of Maiden to know about you?
I was born and raised in Maiden. I graduated from Maiden High School in 1997 and returned to Maiden after graduation from Lenoir Rhyne. I am approachable. I want to hear from the citizens. I want to know what makes them happy and what are their concerns. I want to be the voice of the citizens.

Why did you run for Council?
I ran for Town Council to help bring positive change. I love this town and what it represents. Maiden offers the best small-town community that I have seen, and I have traveled across the country a fair amount. I want to be the voice of the citizen. I know it takes a collective effort of the Town Council to bring change, but I wanted to have a seat at the table to be the voice of reason and that will always question topics before making decisions.

What do you want the citizens of Maiden to know about you?
I have lived in Maiden all my life. I live with my husband, Ricky, who relocated to Maiden from Randolph County, NC when we married in 2018. We both work in Logistics and Transportation. When we are not working, we enjoy spending time with our family as well as traveling, boating, and motorcycle riding.
