My whole life I have been standing up for others. From defending grade school friends on the playground when I was a little girl to lobbying nationally for children in our Child Advocacy Centers as an adult, I have always been a strong and passionate voice for others. It is second nature to me. I’ve always believed that we have to look out for and protect one another.
I recently found myself at the center of a national controversy surrounding the Miss America Organization. It was a painful experience, but it taught me a lot about the power of my voice. By telling my story, by petitioning for change, and by demanding resolution, I ignited a spark that fueled women – AND men – across this country to stand up, speak out, and believe that when people share their stories, positive change can occur. I told my story. It was difficult, but it sparked meaningful change. This experience transformed me.
I want to represent the people of this state because I want to be a voice for Alabamians that is clear and strong. I want to be a voice that sparks positive change. I want to be someone who hears people, unites them and works across party lines to provide leadership and accountability to Congress. I want to be your representative in Alabama's 3rd Congressional District this November. We deserve someone who will stand up for what's right.
