In Nixville, the small community I have adopted as my home, neighbors treat one another as family. We were devastated by an EF-4 tornado just over a year ago, yet I experienced a surge in faith in my fellow man during that experience. Neighbors helped neighbors without anything in return. I love my community and am proud to call it home. One of my priorities is for our citizens to not have to drive an hour or more for a high-paying job. I am also passionate about educating people about the importance of diversity. A diverse team is a stronger team.
