My Uncle is a current Democratic Senator in the United States Congress, so I was born into politics. When I was three, my Grandma gave me a spoon to dig with in the dirt, and I have been playing in the dirt ever since!
My Grandma introduced me to Bob Graham when he was Governor of Florida, so I met Gwen when she was a teenager!
I worked in Agriculture as a service worker, then, over the years, I received my education and started to work for the government at the county where I lived! Even though I was over-qualified, I started as a grunt, and had to work twice as hard as the men in my department just to prove myself!
I was the first female in the county to hold various supervisor positions in my department! I continued to obtain my education and license, and bid on more productive jobs and challenges. After Rick Scott was elected and started to destroy Florida’s beautiful environment, I knew that I had to take action! I campaigned against him, and extremely hard for Gwen Graham! I was blocked by other Resistance members because they chose other candidates!
When Andrew Gillum ran, I turned my efforts towards helping him get elected! My goal was 10,000 New Democratic voters. However, I was only able to register 8,757, my 19-year-old adult child being my first! After Florida became the laughing stock because of the “hanging chads” and other voting mishaps, I believed that voting the Republicans out would be the best revenge!
I have been working to help past-felons restore their voting rights. I was in Tallahassee this past Monday, when many of them spoke in front of the Senate, opposing the bill requiring them to have all fines, cost, and restitution paid before being able to vote!
Nowadays, I contract my services with the government in order to help recovery efforts caused by natural disasters! I made three trips to Puerto Rico to evaluate the environmental impact of the Hurricane, and was able to help the residents with some basic needs! I have a pilot’s license, and fly anywhere there are natural disasters where coordinating help is needed!
I submit short- and long-term goals to help in the recovery caused by climate change; whether it is flooding, droughts, extreme weather, or the environmental impact it has on our country! I work with an amazing group of scientists and educators, trying to prove, with FACTS, that climate change is real to non-believers, especially politicians!
I am the parent of an Autistic adult child, and enjoy meeting many other parents of Autistic children who also RESIST in order to make the world a safer and more accepting place for future generations!
My main concern with the resistance, especially with the upcoming elections, is for the infighting to stop! We should be more respectful to each other, and at least civil! Do not allow anyone to tell you who to follow or block, but think for yourself, and contribute in your own unique way! Choose quality over quantity, and stick to the facts! As an Environmental Scientist, I have to rely on facts and statistical probability. However, I do occasionally give my formulated opinions! Be kind to each other, and remember that there are real people behind these accounts!
