Secretary, Germany; Göttingen-Hannover Vice Chair

I am currently the Secretary of Democrats Abroad Germany, and my volunteer efforts with Democrats Abroad began when I took on the establishment of the Hannover Precinct. After helping to increase our membership and presence in Hannover so that we could become the Göttingen-Hannover Chapter, I became the Vice Chair of our growing chapter. I am a native Texan who has called Germany home for 20 years. As a mother of two boisterous boys and an international school teacher, I am passionate about helping young people take action to make the world around them a better place. I try to lead by example with the work that I do both at Democrats Abroad and on other projects, such as assisting refugees, protecting the environment and helping local food banks. I hope that we can continue to increase the outreach in our Göttingen-Hannover region, in Germany and across the globe to ensure as many people as possible exercise their right to vote. I also truly hope that we can turn Texas blue!! 


    Göttingen-Hannover February Meeting and Chapter Elections!

    Attention all members: Join us for our February meeting for the main event, our biannual Chapter elections! We'll be voting for Chapter Chair and Vice Chair. 

    In order to facilitate neutral elections, DA Germany has initiated a Chapter Nominations and Election Committee (CNEC). Any interested persons who would like to run for either of these positions, should contact this committee. The CNEC will be sending out an email to our chapter members with the necessary details so keep an eye on your email inbox. Even if you aren't interested in running, please join us so that you can cast your vote for the candidates. Voting is open to all members of the Göttingen-Hannover Chapter.

    We'll dedicate up the first half hour of the meeting to open discussion. We look forward to hearing your perspectives on recent events and the inauguration.
