I’m an Educator, Community Leader, and a Lifelong Lexingtonian.

And I’m running for Lexington Urban County Government City Council. I grew up in Lexington’s 6th District and I’ve seen how our district has changed, but also how the values that my family shared with me remain the values that resonate in our community today. I hope to earn your vote, so I can take our values to City Hall.

Community and Family

Caring about the welfare of others is important. I believe a true community is being concerned for others, being connected, and being responsible for what happens in it. Between my time working with youth, or advocating for policy, I’ve been driven to strengthen our communities and families.


Being honest, reliable, and trustworthy are characteristics of a true leader. When you have integrity, you make decisions that are in the best interests of those you are to lead. 


Justice is as much about grace as it is consequence. Although we live in the same community, we do not all have the same access to services and opportunities. On Council, I will work to ensure the playing field is leveled, and our most vulnerable can be uplifted. 


To be a true leader, not only must you see the people you serve as your community, have integrity, and be a justice keeper, you must be unafraid to speak up even when you stand face-to-face with the toughest challenges. Like you, I have faced challenges and have grown from them. I’m excited to see what challenges will come next.
