I was a Medicaid Eligibility Worker at Cover Virginia before joining the Richmond Health District (RHHD). Now, working in public health has brought me to the Southwood Resource Center on the southside of Richmond. I strongly believe that public health should prioritize providing more mental health, medical, and dental services to our community. When it comes to rest and rejuvenation, I love going to the gym.

When it comes to showing out-of-town visitors around, my favorite place is the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. If I had to pick one of Richmond’s best months, it would be either April or October. My walk-up song would be “Everybody” by Nicki Minaj, and when it comes to work sandwiches, the club sandwich best describes my style.
