Personal Motivation:
“I woke up the day after the Presidential election in 2016 with an unwavering sense that I had to do something to help change the direction of the country, but I had no idea what that would mean. About two months later, I learned about Brand New Congress. I knew instantly that BNC was going to be the way I got involved. I ran for Congress as a BNC candidate. I’ve served on the BNC board of directors. Now, I’m thrilled to do everything I can to make our 2020 candidates successful.”
