As a young mother and community advocate, I understand the challenges that Texans face.
For me, changing the conversation in Washington is not about politics — it’s personal.
I’m ready to bring a fresh voice and a new perspective to Congress. I hope you’ll join me.
My story is rooted in faith, guided by progressive values, and fueled by the will to overcome tragedy. I’m the proud daughter of a Vietnam War veteran who volunteered to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force. From an early age, my father told me: “This country is not just meant for white people. It’s meant for black people, too. This is our country. And we must show that we’ll fight for it.”
Stretching from Katy to Pearland; and reaching from Sugar Land to Houston, TX-22 brings a wealth of cultural diversity, hospitality and a growing economy that reflects a changing America. TX-22 is my home. It is where my husband and I decided to start our lives together and raise our children more than a decade ago. The face of TX-22 has changed over the years and we need a representative in Congress that reflects that change.
A Proud Veteran’s Daughter
Under the GI Bill, my father returned from the Vietnam War and earned a Bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude. He continued his service to our country as an IRS revenue officer until he retired in 2005.
My Dad taught me to be a servant leader, and I am honored to continue his legacy of service. After graduating from law school, I launched into pro-bono work for veterans and provided free legal advice to people with insurance claims in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
A Proud Veteran’s Daughter
I am the proud daughter of a Vietnam War Veteran who volunteered to serve his country in the United States Air Force. With the benefit of the GI Bill, my father returned from the Vietnam War and earned a Bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude. He continued his service to this country as a Revenue Officer for the IRS until he retired in 2005.
My Dad taught me to be a servant leader. He instilled in me the true meaning of patriotism. He didn’t mention Democrats or Republicans, he only talked about being an American. Protecting the right to vote and exercising that right; protecting freedom of speech and speaking out against injustices, protecting our right to bear arms and taking up arms to defend this country; working hard to earn an honest wage while helping others who need a helping hand. Serving others without the expectation of something in return; and, defending our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. I am ever striving to live up to the ideals that my dad instilled in me.
