A graduate of New College in Sarasota, Florida, she holds an MBA from Baruch College/City University of NY and the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and has extensive experience in the areas of strategic planning, communication and management.

She served as a Trustee of the Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens, member of the Family Connection Advisory Council at Florida State University and member of the New Smyrna Beach Little Theatre Board of Directors where she is also a Lighting Designer.
I believe public servants must protect the public interest, not special interests. We all benefit, not just socially but economically as well, by having strong public education, excellent and comprehensive health care, clean air and water and a fair criminal justice system.
These are some of the issues I plan to address in Tallahassee.
- Strengthen And Enhance Public Education
- Increase Access To Affordable Healthcare
- Preserve And Protect The Treasures Of Our Environment
- Work To Provide Equal Rights And Justice For All Floridians
- Improve Florida’s Economic Opportunities
- Explore Raising Wages and Supporting Workers
- Support And Honor Veterans
