elected to the TAG Diversity Board. She is also a past contributor to

she founded Georgia’s 1st
ever Georgia Blacks in Tech Policy
Conference & Follow Up “Day of Action” with the focus on advocating

Gwinnett counties. She also founded Georgia’s first Technology,
Innovation & Entrepreneurship Caucus which is a bipartisan caucus
of Georgia legislators and stakeholders committed to the mission of
supporting entrepreneurs within the state. She currently serves as the
Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus and a ranking
member of the Small Business & Jobs Creation committee.
Awards (last 3 awards awarded)- She was awarded the Urban League
of Greater Atlanta Young Leader Award (2019) and named as an
