My previous background is as a legal assistant and paralegal to attorneys for about 20 years. At present, I am pursuing graduate studies at Coastal Carolina University. I am the Director of Operations of a non-profit, faith based coffeehouse that supports the Myrtle Beach community in several ways -- from being a music/art venue to providing the space for 12-step recovery program meetings. My goal is to help businesses and organizations become more effective to better service the Myrtle Beach community. I hold aspirations of being involved in local and state politics. I am a proponent of education and encourage citizens to be involved in their community to make necessary changes that will make their city stronger.
