About Me

I am a Christian, a Mother of three wonderful children, and a native Tennessean. I have lived in my house in District 30 for 16 years, and have lived in Antioch for the past 18 years. 

I am the daughter of a preacher and a schoolteacher and there were six children in our family, so money was pretty tight, but I grew up watching my parents give and do what they could to help others. I have a privileged childhood in so many ways. My parents were married to each other and we all lived under the same roof. I had close bonds with extended family and I always felt loved. I think I took so many simple things for granted, like being raised in a two-parent, Christian home full of books and music and art.

My father is also a Viet Nam veteran and he is retired from the Army Reserves. I have a brother who is currently serving as a Chaplain in the Army Reserves, just as my father did, and another brother and my sister also served in the military, and all spent time in combat zones. I love my country and I love my city. I support and defend the Constitution at every opportunity, and I encourage others to, as well.

I married my high-school sweetheart and even though we divorced when our two children were quite young, we co-parented and our children thrived. I believe in marriage and I believe that children do best when they have healthy relationships with a mother and a father who are married and who live under one roof with their children. I have remained single since my divorce 17 or so years ago, and I am "happily single."

My youngest daughter, Dilara,  was born out of wedlock when I was 42 years old. It was a humbling experience and I find myself to be a lot less judgemental than I was when I was younger. I am as pro-life as they come, but my experience with an unexpected and unwanted pregnancy broadened my perspective and made me a lot more compassionate towards people who are misled into believing that choosing to terminate a pregnancy is a choice they should make.

My chosen career was that of "Homemaker," and I believe there is no higher calling. Although my marriage failed, our parenting relationship did not. Before I had children, my educational and professional background was primarily in the field of Early Childhood education.

I have worshiped at Woodland Hills Church of Christ for 18 years. I have been a Girl Scout Leader and a Cub Scout leader. I have spent the past 5 years or so in the Judicial Accountability Movement and I work with the Family Forward Project and the Family Forward Foundation to improve the child welfare system. I am a member of The 917 Society and I believe that our children are our future and our hope and without strong families and children, we can't have a strong country.

I enjoy cooking, gardening, playing my ukulele and singing, and being as self-sufficient as I can. I am quite frugal and I do my own car repairs whenever I can. I am optimistic, solution-focused, outspoken, and I have the courage of my convictions. I treat other people the way I would like to be treated and I do good at every opportunity. I am honest and loyal and open-minded and I live to serve others.
