As a native, I like calling North Carolina “home.” I can even remember when the Triangle was small, parts were sleepy. We’ve grown from a place where one could walk to kindergarten in my childhood. And we could ride our bikes out of parent sight. Spending college years at Meredith and watching the state grow to 9th largest in my lifetime is “growing up” personified. I remember casting my first ballots and feeling exhilarated when the right candidates won.
I’m motivated to work hard for a North Carolina where the next generation can flourish. I’m inspired to create opportunities, just as they’ve been to extended to me. Whether professional, philanthropic, or political, I’m committed to hard work and service with passion.
