ABOUT STATE SENATOR
Breaking Glass Ceilings
I’m a proud third generation resident of Tennessee’s 33rd District. The 33rd district has remained the conscious of the legislature; fighting for our families and for our future. I graduated from Memphis Central "The" High School in 2009 finishing top of my class. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with minors in Sociology and Intercultural Studies from Saint Mary's College in May 2013. Accompanied by my resilient personality and self-motivated attitude, I decided really early on that I was committed to being a dedicated civil servant who inspires and motivates my peers to be an effective change agent for our futures and for our families.
I currently serve as the State Senator for District 33, the youngest female and African American legislator in Tennessee State Senate History. I am proud to serve as Chair of the Shelby County Delegation of State Legislators. I currently sit on the notable Judiciary and Energy Committees. I have passed numerous pieces of legislation in the State House and Senate with over 7 currently public laws.
I have advocated and advanced policies on the national, state, and local levels that supports families and healthcare. I have worked as an organizer for public education where I empowered, educated, and engaged parents and community members in failing and priority school districts to utilize their voices, be knowledgeable in educational policies, and vote on issues that impact public schools and students.
