When did you know you wanted a career in politics/state government?
After being voted to the student council of my high school, I had dreams of grandeur in someday running for the United States Senate. In fact, one of the main reasons I chose to attend Florida State University in Tallahassee was because it was the capital city and where the action was. I volunteered for everything political – College Republicans, Young Republicans – but quickly learned that I was more interested in the process rather than the office itself. I love working behind the scenes in getting good people elected and important public policy passed.
