Residence – I am a Georgia native and grew up in the Athens and Atlanta suburbs. Today I live in the magnificent mountain community of Clayton in Rabun County.,
Occupation – Today, I enjoy my retirement from a lifetime career serving our country and healthcare for over 50 years. Upon graduating from the University of Georgia, I served in the US Army as a commissioned officer during the Vietnam War. After my years in the Army, I was a faculty dietician for Emory University Hospital and the University of Georgia. I was a diabetes educator for the State of Georgia Department of Education.
Political experience – In 2020, I ran for the Rabun County Schoolboard. As an active member of the Rabun County Democrats, I have campaigned for many of our local, state, and Federal Democrats who have run for office.
Family – As a native of Georgia, my family roots run deep in the Georgia northeast region. In my youth, I grew up in Athens along with my brother. Today my brother and I live in Rabun County and frequently visit with our cousins and my 150 nieces and nephews, who are spread all over the globe. I appreciate living in Rabun County, which I enjoy with my many friends, family, and my two dogs.
