Four years have passed since I began the journey to become the Solicitor-General of DeKalb County. I ran on the premise of building partnerships; and only through those partnerships can we build a better, safer DeKalb.
Since 2017 I have been working hard to build those partnerships. I spent the first year in office expanding and training the team. I created a Quality of Life Unit dedicated to eradicating blight in our communities and holding repeat violators accountable.
Building partnerships with groups like the Women’s Resource Center and the International Women’s House offered me the opportunity to create a fun and exciting way to give back. I created the first ever Dancing with the DeKalb Stars to help end Domestic Violence. In three years, we raised over $50,000 to help victims of domestic violence.
Other partnerships with groups including Men Stopping Violence, Juvenile Court and the Decatur Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated, have led to the office securing grants, providing toiletries for foster children, promoting healthy teen relationships and creating a campaign that is directly geared to bring awareness to domestic violence in the community.
I am the proud recipient of the Thurgood Marshall award for community service by the Davis Bozeman Law Firm and I have recently been awarded the Hope for Tomorrow Award by the International Women’s House.
Additionally, I was nominated to receive the DeKalb Chapter of the NAACP Thurgood Marshall award for service.
I am honored to serve as the DeKalb County Solicitor- General and I hope to continue this journey.
I am proud of the county that I have called my home for 40 years. I am proud to live, work, play and pray here. I want to continue to serve the county that I have always called home.
I look forward to continuing to serve all of DeKalb.
