I’ve called Roanoke home since 1984 and have loved living in this community ever since. Making people’s lives better is my passion, and I’m lucky to do that every day as the owner and administrator for Blue Ridge Senior Services and as a member of City Council since January of 2019.
Having been a long-time community advocate, it’s been a privilege to be able to contribute to improving our city over the past year, but we’re just getting started! A full term on City Council will let me continue being a champion for the issues that matter most to you.
Over the years, I’ve built solid relationships throughout the community with advocates and organizations. I’ll continue working directly with them on the changes and issues affecting Roanoke, from affordable housing to public safety. I’ve had a lot of experience in navigating public-private partnerships after serving on the Roanoke Higher Education Authority and board for the Local Office on Aging and I’ll keep using that background to connect our city’s resources.
Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me! I’d love to learn more about you and what you think City Council should work on, so please drop me a line anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Making Roanoke an even better place to live starts with listening to you. Our most valuable resource is our people, and hearing your ideas and concerns and then finding solutions is my central focus. One of my favorite things about Roanoke is its different neighborhoods and their unique personalities. I recognize that making the best policy isn’t a one-size-fits all effort: your communities have different needs and you should all have a seat at the table.
