About Me

Originally from Wingate, North Carolina, I moved to Conway, South Carolina during middle school and worked in my father's woodworking factory during my first summer in South Carolina. My first "real" summer job consisted of waiting tables and serving pancakes in Myrtle Beach. I started work at 13 years old, had my first checking account before I had a driver's license, and started investing my savings before I graduated high school. Early on, I learned the value of hard work and being a fiscal conservative.

I graduated from the College of Charleston in 1983, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. While in college, I joined the College Young Republicans. I was very excited to cast my first vote for President Ronald Reagan. I also enjoyed my service as President of the Panhellenic Council. I am still involved with my alma mater as a former member of the Board of Directors of the College of Charleston Alumni Association and as a current member of the School of Science and Mathematics Advisory Board.

I began my career at Santee Cooper, a public power electric and water utility, at an interesting time in the burgeoning field of information technology. During that time, I held technical and management positions in programming, systems programming, networking, database systems, disaster recovery, and planning. During that time, earned my Master’s degree in Computer and Information Resources Management. Later in my career, I held the positions of Manager, Wholesale Markets and Manager, Nuclear Contract Administration and gained experience in generation planning, forecasting, marketing, sales, contract negotiation and contract administration. retired from Santee Cooper in 2014.

After retiring in 2014, I was ready to serve, full-time, the people of Berkeley County and the state of South Carolina. I am humbled and honored each and every day to serve in the SC House of Representatives. 

I am a longtime resident of Moncks Corner in Berkeley County, South Carolina. I have been married to my husband, Michael Davis, for 28 years, and together we are blessed to have four sons and four grandchildren.
