I am a resident of Highland Park in the 6th District and I live with my husband, best friend, Emmett the Chug, 3 cats and 13 fish. I am a Northside and Richmond City enthusiast. I'm also into gardening, leggings, fluffy creatures, unicorns, old as hell houses, funk & soul music, art, sweet treats, TV, pickle brine, and your mom. Say HI! to her for me. The exasperated sigh is my signature sound. Learning about how local government works and educating others is something I feel very lucky to be able to do.
By the way, I am the Volunteer Coordinator at WRIR-LP 97.3 FM and I WANT YOU... to volunteer with us.

I live in Northern Barton Heights near Battery Park. I love local politics, travelling, CrossFit, and cats. My education background is in political science, philosophy, and communication studies with a minor in ethics. So naturally, by day I am a sales and recruiting manager for an insurance company. By night... I am deep in the dark interwebz researching. For as snarky as I am, I am just as caring. My passion is equal access to opportunities which, in Richmond, means I am passionate about a lot ranging from education to housing and more.

I'm a Richmond area transplant from the Tidewater. I attended high school in RVA and later returned to the area after marriage. Looking for a way to serve the community, I began volunteering for various non-profit organizations, registering voters and following local politics for fun. Besides being the coolest SAHM ever, I love to cook, travel, and live tweet RVA social and political events all through these twitter streets. I like my [vegan] food spicy, my heels super high, and my wine by the bottle. I hope you enjoy my super shady humor so much that you're led to get involved in #RVAPolitics too.
