A letter from the candidate
I am running for the Florida House of Representatives because our state needs leaders with proven experience that can help improve our economy and make sure we have a world class education system.
In college, I served two consecutive terms as Student Body President and a member of the Board of Trustees at the University of Central Florida. Now, I live by UCF in District 49. Our district has many high quality Universities within its borders including Full Sail, Valencia College, and the University of Central Florida. My experience serving in higher education and knowing the important issues that drive a successful education system will prove valuable. As Vice Chair of the Florida Student Association I fought to save the Bright Futures Scholarship program and I want to make sure students have access to a high quality and affordable education.
After graduating I went into the private sector and worked at the corporate headquarters for Office Depot and Target Corporation, two Fortune 500 companies. I was able to see firsthand what it takes to build successful companies and create jobs. I then went into development working at two large healthcare systems including Florida Hospital, one of the nation’s largest healthcare systems. I recently was part of the team that opened the Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes which partners with Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute in Lake Nona’s Medical City. East Orange County is an emerging biomedical research and education hub. Additionally, we have a world class modeling and simulation industry that is a strong economic anchor of our community. I will capitalize on our momentum by attracting new businesses and making sure there is a pro-jobs environment so that our existing small businesses can grow and be successful.
I will use my private sector experience to improve our economy and help create jobs. I’ve been part of leading organizations that create jobs and are pillars of successful economies, I want to put that experience to work for you. The issues our state faces now are grave. We need a leader with the right experience to help solve tough issues. I’ve been a leader in school and in the workforce. I will use my experience and strong work ethic to solve these issues. Help me get to Tallahassee by spreading the word about my candidacy, connecting with me on social media, volunteering on my campaign and donating to help elect a principled leader.
