I was elected Treasurer of the City of Manassas in November 2016 to serve the remaining unexpired term of  our former treasurer who retired at that time.  I am running for re-election on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, for a regular term and respectfully ask for your vote!

My father was a preacher and both of my parents worked very hard.  They taught me the importance of honesty, integrity and service.

 

I hold a degree in Business Administration and have diverse professional experience ranging from managing my own construction company to business development in the publishing industry.  

I am actively involved in our community, having served as Chair of the Manassas City Family Services Advisory Board and as a member of the Prince William County Regional Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs.  I also served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Prince William County Arts Council and am a member of the Rotary Club of Manassas.

My husband John and I have four children, have lived for many years in the Rolling Road neighborhood of Manassas, and worship as members of Global Truth Ministries.
