Small business owner
My birth family was Republican while I was growing up in New Jersey in the 1950's. My commitments and values have aligned closely with the Republican Party Platform throughout my life. When I moved to NC in 1979, I continued to be involved in political activity as a professional nurse in practice, education, administration, and research. I have learned a lot from being a part of the grassroots growth of the Republican Party in Durham County and highly value participating in civic service in NC. It is invigorating, enjoyable, and meaningful; I believe everyone benefits from being involved in civic life, not only because it is a basic duty as an American citizen, but because of the great people you meet and the good teamwork, and because it enriches life and community spirit.
