I Am Here To Serve

Supervisor of Elections of Indian River County since 2011

I am excited to announce that I am seeking re-election as the Indian River County Supervisor of Elections.  It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Indian River County. My goal is to continue conducting secure, transparent, and trouble-free elections.

I have extensive elections experience with the planning and implementation of 30 elections in Indian River County and have served in various capacities within the elections office during my 15-year tenure, including the Voter Outreach Coordinator, Qualifying Officer, and the Assistant Supervisor of Elections.

I have earned the coveted national CERA designation as a Certified Elections & Registration Administrator.  I have also attained state certification as a Master Florida Certified Elections Professional (MFCEP).

I was raised in Vero Beach and graduated from Vero Beach High School.  I attended the University of Florida earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations with a minor in Business.  Additionally, I earned an AS Degree in Interior Design Technology.  I have been married for 33 years to my husband Michael and have three adult children: Trenton, Lauren, and Courtney.
