My Daughter Transformed My Life

I knew if I wanted to raise my daughter in NC, I would need to transform the world around her.  I would have to open doors and create opportunities for her, women and working families.

I began dealing with policy and families during a weatherization initiative. Thanks to former President Barack Obama's stimulus package, I was given an opportunity to help thousands of working families in Northeastern NC receive weatherization improvements and upgrades for their energy-burdened homes.

 

My responsibilities included navigating federal and state regulations and provide solutions for the weatherization training & certification for people whom lived in low income communities. Here, I brought durable solutions for the trainees who experienced conflicts between social services benefits & the weatherization program.

 

In some of the poorest counties, I worked with local government to identify seniors, persons with disabilities, and families with children in need of weatherization services. These solutions led to a workforce who acquired a sustainable and
sought-after skill which consistently
provided for their families.

I am the owner of NC Living Realty and a member in good standing with the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS, North Carolina Association of REALTORS and the National Association of REALTORS. My real estate business caters to a diverse clientele, but I have a soft spot for veterans.

The men and women of the Armed Forces & their families deserve the most support the US can offer and my business aims to do its part in those efforts.

As a means to honor my family's military legacy, I am a contributor to veteran causes. For every VA buyer/seller, I donate a portion of my sales to a local veteran organization. I believe these contributions make change toward the economic, educational and social obstacles many veterans and
their families experience.
