Born and raised in Lawrence County, TN, I have a master’s degree in experimental psychology from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. My husband, Rob, and I are raising our 1-year-old daughter in Thompson’s Station. I am a clinical/translational research coordinator at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and my husband owns his own business and is a software engineer.

Like many others who have moved to Williamson County, we fell in love with the natural beauty and history of the area. And like many others, we have concerns about the county leadership’s decisions. I believe the county commission needs fresh ideas and leaders who can make tough decisions.
