Let's Improve District 6 Together!

I want to represent the people of Doddridge County, Tyler County, and Pleasants County and need your vote in the upcoming election for the House of Delegates in West Virginia.

I was born and raised in Sistersville, West Virginia, and graduated from Sistersville High School in 1977. I have had the privilege of living in West Union for the past 30 years where, with the help of our village, I raised my family and taught them the values that we West Virginians hold dear.

My life hasn’t been a walk in the park. I, like so many of you, have struggled and endured. There was a time when the state cared for me. I’m not ashamed to admit that I received unemployment benefits and food stamps to make ends meet. These were difficult times but ones that taught me a lot about myself. They were also times which enabled my character to grow.


My resilience and desire to realize my full potential allowed me to eventually start a career with CNG/Dominion where I worked for 30 years in software development and business analysis. Over the years I have also started multiple small business enterprises, which I believe are the lifeblood of our local economy. As a member of the Doddridge County Chamber of Commerce, I have continued to mentor and support small businesses, and as your next Delegate, I vow to protect small business owners in our district.


I look forward to your support in the upcoming election and welcome your insight on ways to improve our community. The best way forward is together.
