I have two children and have called Sand Springs home for more than 20 years. I am a poor/working class person. I currently serve at Deborah Brown Community School. I grew up in a tight-knit, working-class family. For more than 17 years, I have served at risk populations, and helped children from birth through Pre-Kindergarten prepare for school readiness, lifelong learning, and emotional stability. I am an activist for marginalized communities and an anti-racist worker. I am on the leadership team for Aware Tulsa, (the local chapter of SURJ). We partner with communities of color to combat over policing, incarceration, mobilize white folks to be allies, and effect policy change. We also partner with communities and leaders of color to combat over policing, incarceration, and effect policy change. I am the Democratic Precinct Chair for my area, and decided to do more than just be a volunteer after the 2016 election. I have dedicated my life to serving my community.
