I grew up half of my life in Jacksonville, Florida, and the other half in Northern Virginia.
My dad is a retired Navy Captain and he and my mom give me hope for the world because they share true love. I had a typical childhood, but suffered severe bullying. For years, I hated myself and I believed everything they said about me. Those deep wounds, now scars, made me the resilient person you see today. To those bullies, I want to say, “Thank you.” You taught me compassion and you made me so incredibly strong.
I graduated from George Mason University, with honors, in criminal justice. Despite my strong performance in school, I was one of those millennials who could not find a job. So, I started walking dogs for money. After months of picking up dog’s droppings — and I will say there is no shame in an honest day’s labor — I saw my friends posting about their careers on Facebook.
Determined not to be a failure, I applied to a temp agency.. For the next year, I worked for Alexandria City Public Schools and was eventually hired full-time by ACPS. In 2012, President Obama was re-elected and the rest is history.
I am a dog walker turned Republican activist, who is on a mission to re-elect President Trump in 2020.
Join us for #CPAClive as we welcome Scott Presler and Matthew Whitaker who both understand America’s urgent need to work toward conservative solutions.
As the radical Left attempts to normalize socialized healthcare and put us on a path towards Medicare for All, the time has come for conservatives to take a stand. America faces an unforeseen enemy in the coronavirus, and what is clearer than ever before is that Americans need more options; not fewer. What is the role of the federal government during a healthcare crisis? How do we provide comprehensive care for thousands of America’s veterans who have sacrificed so much? Is there any way to curb Medicare and Medicaid spending yet still provide for lower income Americans? Innovation has always been the American way and here you will find substantive policy discussions on ways we can improve and ensure the health of our nation’s citizens for generations to come.Watch Now
