I moved to Eureka Springs in 2010 with my partner of 19 years, Shannon Dugger.  I lived my entire life in Houston Texas until we decided we wanted something different.  We owned and operated a tax practice for over 20 years when we made the big jump to change our lives and move to beautiful Eureka Springs.  Once in Eureka, we purchased Cabin Fever Resort.  I still do some tax and accounting on the side, but my primary focus has been the cabins.

Until this past election season, I admittedly have not been a very vocal Democrat.  However, the current political climate became more than I could ignore and decided it was time to get involved.  I was fortunate to discover the Democratic Party of Carroll County and am excited to help make a change.

As Treasurer, I am dedicated to total transparency while ensuring sound fiscal management, monthly, quarterly and yearly reporting and budgeting.  I also serve as the Chair of the Finance Committee.

As a relatively new Eurekan (June 2017), I am honored and challenged by being asked to serve as Vice Chair of Community Outreach. My hope is that with still fresh eyes, last year’s experience on the Outreach Committee under Jillian’s terrific leadership, and passion to make a positive difference in expanding our Democratic family, that I could honorably serve in that role.


 I’m a native Memphian, married, and a Registered Nurse for 40 + years in a variety of capacities. I have enjoyed working over the years with a variety of populations and ethnicities, and developed more empathy from this experience.   I have a world-view of inclusiveness in our country, pertinent to progressive Democratic values.   Over the years I’ve participated in a variety of volunteer opportunities such as AIDS support services, United Way activities, and currently at ECHO clinic.


I believe we could help expand our positive and progressive Democratic message in Carroll County.
