A Born Political Candidate

I was born and raised in Alabama to a young mother and father. Growing up in the south as the 2nd oldest of 14 children was challenging at times; however, I garnered valuable leadership skills and the ability to influence. I learned the importance of hard work, becoming a person of value, and giving back to the community. After graduating high school and attending college, I decided to pursue a new challenge by enlisting in the U.S. Army and serving my country. Soon after my military career, I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Management. I'm working on my graduate certificate in Election Administration and a Master's in Business Administration. I am now looking to serve my country by protecting free and fair elections here in Washington State.
I choose to run for Secretary of State because I want to make a difference; I believe that representation matters, voter education matters, and combating election misinformation and disinformation matters. I am here for voters. I want to ensure that voters are informed as much as possible. I am confident that I can handle the position; I am innovative, courageous, and knowledgeable in election administration. I intend to remain engaged in ensuring that we will uphold democracy through the vote of the people of this great state.  I am ready to hit the ground running once I am elected.
