I grew up in the South on a farm, with a deep appreciation for our region’s natural resources, beauty and traditions. I have been a resident on Sullivan’s Island for more than a dozen years. My husband, Scott and I raised our three children here.
I am deeply committed to this special community we all treasure and love.
As President of the Sullivan’s Island Park Foundation for the last 10 years, I have logged thousands of volunteer hours and raised more than $100,000 for improvements to our town parks, playgrounds, tennis courts and other civic amenities. As a board member for other local area institutions, I work to improve the fiscal strength and governance of community organizations in education, healthcare and the arts. I am collaborative and results oriented. I will rely on my proven experience, work ethic and civic pride to help strategically and sensibly plan and manage our island for today and for our future.
- Healthy Infrastructure
Nuts and bolts matter, especially for our growing and popular island. I will work to ensure we have clean, nonflooded roads, safe and well maintained parks and put a new lens on historic properties. Our beaches and public areas are a gift that we should be good stewards of and take pride in.
- Prudent Financial Management
As the communities around us grow, it is essential we prudently manage our financial resources. I will make sure our tax dollars are wisely spent. I will look to source other options for help with covering the cost of the impact of the growing influx of visitors.
- Connected Community
Our island has been called Mayberry by the Sea. It’s no wonder. Sullivan’s Island is special because of its people: young, old, families, longtime residents, new faces. I’ll create opportunities for us to come together as a community to share our warmth and passion for this remarkable place we get to call home.
