Tell us about yourself: who you are, where you're from, etc.

I am a mom, a former McKinsey and Bain consultant, and currently am trying to be futures trader. I grew up in NY, moved to San Francisco 20+ years ago, and am trying to figure out how to get back east, which will always feel like home.

What does being a "Centrist" mean to you, and why did you get involved?

It means supporting liberal domestic policies such as universal health coverage, abortion rights, gay marriage, and being in favor of legislation to combat climate change. It also means supporting conservative positions such as school choice, fiscal restraint, promoting democratic values and supporting our allies and alliances abroad, and supporting free-trade, with job retraining and support for those who are left behind.

What is a policy issue you are passionate about and why?

School choice, Free trade, Income inequality

How do you think we can unite our country and fix our politics?

Maybe we could start by showing those who are left behind that they matter and will be heard and helped

Anything else you'd like to add?

I am so happy to have found you. I have been looking for a group such as this, or thinking of forming one. We cannot afford any longer to stay outside politics.
