I believe in the right to petition, that is the right to make a complaint, or seek the assistance of our government, without fear of punishment or retaliation. I believe my time and value as a former public servant is to help others understand and advance their policy goals by sharing my years of policy expertise and knowledge about what works and things to avoid. Information is meant to be shared with those who need it most. As a former substitute teacher and college tutor and mentor, I’ve always enjoyed helping others learn and grow.
I am involved within the community and in the political world, serving as: Board Member of the non-profit, non-partisan Mississippi Society of Washington, DC; Frontrunner for She Should Run, a national, non-partisan organization dedicated to eliminating the barriers to women running for local, state, and national office; and Board Advisor to the Congressional Black Associates, a bicameral, non-partisan organization that serves as the professional and social network for black employees working on Capitol Hill.
