Profile Biography 
I like to tell myself when I'm running, "the tortoise won". Whether I'm running a marathon to financially support a non-profit or serving as Board Chair for our local Chapter of American Red Cross, community service is important.

I love the Northwest however, I'm originally from the state of Virginia. I'm a graduate of Virginia State University where I met and married my husband.

I started out my career as an analytical chemist with Energy Northwest. Today, I work for the Washington State Department of Ecology as a project manager on the clean-up of our nations most radiologically contaminated site (Hanford). This position allows me to serve Washington's public by assuring that cleanup is done consistent with State and Federal regulations and guidelines. Believe me, being a regulator is not always the most pleasant position to be in. Just like the tortoise, the cleanup of Hanford is a slow and steady process.
