My Brentsville story began in 1995 when my husband Dan and I moved to Gainesville because we felt it would be a great place to raise kids. A daughter, a son, and lots of four-legged friends later, this district is still the place I love to call home.
I have been a long-time advocate for Brentsville families and students. I was active in my children's PTO, served on the Bridlewood Homeowners Association, and was appointed and eventually chaired the Prince William Safe Schools Council. My daughter graduated from Patriot High School in 2016, and my son attends there now. Along the way I have gained valuable perspectives from parents, business owners, teachers, farmers, and more about the balance required to meet the changing needs of our new neighborhoods with the beauty and modern agrarian economy of the Rural Crescent, a region very close to my heart.
I am a passionate voice for the consequences of unrestrained development and the need for smart growth. I strive to maintain a high quality of life for our district while continuing to create opportunities for tourist sites and small businesses that reflect the wonderful county we live in. The fight against the BiCounty Parkway was the battle that led me to elevate my community leadership to elected office.
Since 2015 I have brought my knowledge and passion for Brentsville to be your voice on the Prince William Board of Supervisors. I am also a member of several boards and commissions to advance my vision of transportation, education, and conservation for all of Prince William County.
Potomac Rappahannock Transportation Commission (OmniRide)
Virginia Railway Express (VRE), Executive Committee
Innovation Owner’s Association Board of Directors, Chairman
George Mason University Science and Technology Advisory Board
Virginia Association of Counties (VACO), Environmental and Agriculture Steering Committee
I currently serve on the Freedom Museum Board and am a former board member of Carried to Full Term, an organization that supports mothers facing unplanned pregnancies. Outside of making my service as your Supervisor my full-time job, I enjoy sports, cooking and teaching Sunday school at Grace Life Community Church in Bristow.
