I WANT TO MAKE AN IMPACT
I have always asked myself, "What impact do I want to make?" The answer is simple. I want to change the culture among our leadership. There is a dismissive “we know better than you” arrogance that currently plagues our beloved state’s legislature from both sides of the aisle. As an unaffiliated candidate and political outsider, I am making it my goal to bring politics back to the people from the elites. I want transparency to be the norm and for the community to be a real part of the solutionary process. I want to hear and learn from my community because, as we know, the government does not have all the answers. My door will always be open, and that’s the way it should be.

WHY I AM DIFFERENT
I am all about charity and helping families, which I believe makes my campaign all the more genuine. In a nutshell, I’m not a politician. I want to end the political games that serve a few at the expense of the many. Instead, I want to generate interest in local and statewide issues by being transparent and involving the community. I want to tackle quality of life issues that have been ignored for too long. Government is supposed to work for the people, not the other way around. I just want to help people and make a positive impact, and that’s what drives me everyday.
I am so motivated to do this, and for the right reasons. Long before I ever considered this run, I have founded, hosted or assisted numerous special events that benefit charitable organizations. Among these is the KNK Foundation (501c3) that I founded which has truly served all genders, ages, and demographics. I have hosted the annual holiday fundraiser benefiting the Fighting for Kaiden Foundation, an organization that raises awareness and funds for the battle against SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). In addition, I offer free women’s self defense classes at my gym and founded “Girl Power” to empower women from all walks of life throughout our community. Girl Power now brings in over 5000 women per event and supports over 300 women owned businesses. I founded SoundShape, a fun and new exercise program set to live DJ music that anyone at any fitness level can do. Since this started, I have been invited to schools all over the DMV to lead SoundShape programs for the kids, and have been featured on the National Mall 3 times. At one of my businesses, MMA & Sport, we sponsor at-risk children, and through this we have helped them stay out of trouble and bring up their grades in school. I also volunteer at Elder Care and other elder homes across the state. Our elderly are often neglected, but I am able to develop a great rapport with them while providing entertainment, and enjoy every minute of it. I feel that people and leadership do not sufficiently prioritize the needs of the elderly and that needs to change. Learn more about my priorities here.
