I have leveraged adversity and disadvantage to forge excellence and prosperity most of my adult life. I am a visionary, directly impacted leader, accountant, data scientist and researcher with Ph.D. training. I am the President of Sykes Capital Management.
I was recently named 1 of 10 of the Most Inspiring Women in Business in the World to Watch in 2022. I was also a homeless, 17-year-old teenage mom and victim of domestic violence who grew up in public housing in Brooklyn, NY.
I am running for New York’s 10th Congressional district because we are suffering from a leadership deficit and this extraordinary time calls for an extraordinary candidate to meet this moment.
America is going in the wrong direction. I plan to introduce original legislation that intelligently addresses climate change, prioritizes modernizing our nation’s infrastructure, revolutionizes K-12 education, reduces poverty, funds public housing, and invests heavily in community and workforce development.
I also plan to conduct research to examine healthcare disparities and embed health equity into every legislative decision I make.
