Putting My Experience
I Support Business
In 2008, My husband Rob and I created MAK Remodeling Services, while he worked at WMATA (Metro). I have the experience of building a company from the ground up. When you dedicate your life and finances to bring a product or service to your community, then I believe you are an Essential Business! We operate our company full time and understand the struggles of businessownership. I realize the burden of high taxes, wages, safety, operating costs, and all that comes with running your company. I am pro-business and will fight for low taxes and more opportunities for companies large and small.
I Support Parents & School Choice!
After experiencing some of the poor practices and short comings of the Charles County Public Schools, I made the decision to educate at home. I have homeschooled all of my children for the past eleven years. I dedicated nine years to helping other parents teach their children by operating two homeschooling centers. With limited options and failing schools, often parents are left with little choice. We have an inconsistant educational system that our tax dollars are paying for. I know we can do better, which is why I support parents and school choice.
Community is Key
I received my BFA from UMD, College Park in 2007, and went on to establish a local Children's Theatre Company. My theater company lead me to the Black Box Theatre in Indian Head, Maryland. After performing on their stage, I saw the value of local outreah. I am now the current Vice Chair of the Indian Head Center for the Arts, Black Box Theatre. As of 2021,we partnered with the College of Southern Maryland Performing Arts Department to bring free and affordable programs and performances to the community.
