      In my professional life, I am currently a staffer to a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates. I manage their legislative agenda, people operations, and office information technology. I have previously worked on local, statewide, and presidential political campaigns. I am also a person in recovery from an alcohol use disorder. I have been in recovery for several years, and have recently embraced sobriety. My personal experiences have led me to support policies and candidates that are dedicated to improving the lives of other folks living with substance use disorder. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve others in the Richmond community through a position on the McShin Foundation board. I also am a board member of the UVA Club of Richmond.
