A vote for me is a vote for our community
While I was born in Huntersville and attended Huntersville Elementary School, I was primarily raised in Denver, NC where we moved to live closer to my grandparents. A few years after graduation, I made the move to Cornelius where I met my husband, Eddie. We began house hunting. Eddie grew up in downtown Huntersville and I had my own ties to the community, so it was no surprise that this is where we wanted to live and raise our family. Our home is our happy place, we have a big yard that our two pups can run around in, a place for my garden, nestled on a serene street within walking distance to downtown.
As far as career is concerned, I was a bit all over the place until finding my spot in Human Resources for a global asset management firm headquartered in Charlotte. Because of my profession, I take building relationships and a strong personal code of ethics very seriously. Prior to the start of my HR career I worked as a teller for a local bank, coached cheerleading at a school nearby, and served as a member of the Black and Blue Crew for the Carolina Panthers. Throughout the course of the pandemic, like many others I spent my days working at home, which provided the opportunity to volunteer with Camp EDvantage. This was a free camp for children in the Lake Norman area who did not have access to the technology required to participate in virtual learning for school.
When people ask what I like to do for fun, it typically involves activities with my friends and family. We love to support our local businesses! You can typically find us walking to a yummy breakfast at Cafe 100, grabbing an afternoon pick-me-up from Main Street Coffee, or indulging in a quick bite to eat at Harvey's, and if I'm being completely honest a Friday evening beverage on the porch of Crafty Beer Guys hits just right.
My grandmother birthed the idea of the Hello Huntersville festival and aided in much of the planning of the very first one, likely where I get my love for event planning from. Pictured above you will see her in the red convertible as they parade through the streets of Huntersville celebrating the comradery of our town.
The very first picture I took with my, now, husband was taken at the annual 4th of July spray down in Birkdale village. He was a member of the Huntersville Fire Department at the time.
I am an avid animal lover! You will see my two dogs at the top of this page, not pictured is our sweet cat. The dogs names are Kovu and Kiara, and our cat is Nala, all of which are named after characters from my favorite movie: The Lion King.
