My husband and I are raising three children in Loudon County and are very passionate about what happens here. Since 2006, a flexible schedule has allowed me to dedicate time to volunteer at school and attend county meetings. I have researched solutions to validate funding from county commission and wrote/spoke to our current elected officials to push for better school facilities, property sales and on environment issues. Around four years ago, I created, a good example of the relationship between local government, education and grassroots.
