District 1

Sumter County District 1 Commissioner

I was appointed by Governor Ron DeSantis in March, 2022. I was elected at large by all Sumter County voters in August, 2022. I am a Certified County Commissioner. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Physics.

I spent over 2 decades working for the Federal Government in the Washington, DC area. This is where I gained my vast experience in government and public service. I began my career as a crypto-mathematician at National Security Agency (NSA) decoding highly classified messages from the nation's 2 top adversaries. I worked at National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) on the Mars mission analyzing data to determine the composition of Mars atmosphere. These 2 jobs honed my skills in solving complex problems. I worked as a Congressional liaison for General Accountability Office (GAO) reviewing, recommending and marking-up federal legislation. I participated in Congressional Hearings on Capitol Hill. I worked under Justice Clarence Thomas when he led Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), working with complainants and respondents to investigate and mediate employment claims.

I am the current president of Republican Federated Women of Citrus-Sumter Counties (RFWCS), former secretary of Florida Federation of Republican Women (FFRW), National Federation Republican Women (NFRW) Campaign Coordinator 2019-2020, precinct chair for Sumter County Republican Executive Committee (REC), a member of The Villages Republican Club and the Republican Club of Sumter County. I am an NRA member and was a Range Safety Officer.

My husband and I moved to Sumter County in 2007. We live in The Villages with our rescue dog which is why I am pleased to play a part in the oversight of Sumter County Animal Services.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Sumter County. Issues such as infrastructure, fire, EMS, public safety, sewage and water, are not political. I look forward to working with all county residents to keep Sumter one of the best managed counties in our state. Sumter First!
