I grew up in a poor family that regularly had to depend on government resources in order for us to survive. By the time I was 12, I had attended six different elementary schools because my family was evicted from house after house.  

As a child, I experienced the hopelessness of not having health insurance. We suffered heartbreak when one of my younger brothers tragically died before his thirteenth birthday. He had been diagnosed with epilepsy and obtaining medical care was a constant struggle for my family. We couldn’t afford health care. 

In order to break the cycle of poverty I knew I had to obtain an education. I was the first in my immediate family to attend college and I put myself through school using grants, loans, and scholarships. 

In my life, I have battled and beaten morbid obesity. Due to a dangerous vascular condition I almost lost my leg. I know what it is to fight. These moments inspired me to do better for myself. 

I decided I wanted to do better for others. I built my clinic and almost four years later we serve nearly 1,300 Tennesseans. As a small business owner, I understand the struggles of building something from nothing, while also serving the needs of our community and keeping the business successful and functional.

Our healthcare system mirrors what is wrong with our current government. Both are dependent on private interest groups and the politicians that are bought off by them. It is my firm belief that a sense of ethics and a focus on people applies not only in medicine, but should be the foundation of our government.

I have spent my adult life listening to and caring for others. Practicing medicine in today’s world requires not only book smarts but also knowing how to help people navigate an unethical system burdened by high cost and driven by corruption.

Representing people is more than just showing up for photo ops and attending expensive dinners. Representing people means you listen to their concerns, you find solutions, and you get stuff done.

Elected officials should be there to protect you and our community

Your healthcare RIGHTS were preserved!!!

Dear Concerned Citizens,

Yesterday marked an important point in the protection of our healthcare RIGHTS. We are hoping for a bipartisan approach moving forward that will fix our current healthcare system...HOWEVER we need your help!  

Not a single member of Congress appears to be concerned about the REAL ISSUE plaguing our healthcare system which is out of control price gouging.

If elected, I promise to introduce legislation that would return healthcare to a not-for-profit entity.

To do this...I still need your help.

Would you consider making a monthly recurring donation?

"It's time to elect government officials who are TRAINED to CARE for you."
