Honoring who we are, creating vision for who we will become
Our City is destined for renewal. Our neighborhoods are waiting for us to pay closer attention to their needs and ambitions.
We are at a tipping point in Paducah. We can either capture our momentum and accelerate into a City of growth and opportunity or we can remain stagnant for the next decade.
“ In the end, Tipping Points are a reaffirmation of the potential for change and the power of intelligent action. Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push—in just the right place—it can be tipped.” – Malcolm Gladwell

I’ve always said that growing up between my mom’s farm in Ballard, my dad’s car dealerships in Marshall, and my grandparents’ mobile home business on Cairo Road in Paducah made me an adaptive and flexible person who was willing to tackle the hard stuff and ask the hard questions.
I moved home 7 years ago after going to school and working in Nashville, Boston and DC. My life and career experiences have prepared me to serve Paducah with bold and visionary leadership. I will be honored to serve as your next Mayor.
