I was born and raised here in the Mountain State, with roots stretching back to our state's founding. I'm a lifelong West Virginian, graduate of West Virginia University and a proud product of our public school system. Now, I'm running to represent Putnam County, District 21, in the State House of Delegates.
I began my career as the campaign manager for Congressman and Supreme Court Justice Evan Jenkins. Most recently, I served as the Victory Director of the West Virginia Republican Party where my team helped elect conservative supermajorities all across the state. Today, I'm the owner of a West Virginia-based public relations firm, working in the energy, healthcare and higher education sector.
Following my victory in the May primary election, I was honored to be appointed to the State House of Delegates by Governor Jim Justice, serving as our community's voice in Charleston since June of 2022. In the State House, I've proudly stood strong for Putnam County's conservative values.
In my personal life, I serve on the Board of the Lincoln Legacy Foundation and the Board of the Ohio-West Virginia Youth Leadership Association (YLA), two non-profit organizations dedicated to providing a strong civic education to the next generation of West Virginia students.
I was inspired to run for office to make West Virginia and Putnam County the best place in the entire country to live, work and raise a family in. Too many of our friends and family members have had to leave to seek better economic opportunities. Recent development announcements in our area are encouraging, but we can't let our foot off the gas. There's never been a more critical time to elect the right people.
Above all else, I believe in West Virginia. Our best years are ahead of us. Let's stay focused and do this together.
