Military Service

Military service and leadership has always been central to Missy’s life. From a naval scholarship to Villanova University, to a master’s degree in military communications after completing active duty. And in this race, Missy is proud to accept the endorsement of VoteVets.org.

Small Business

Advocate for Safety & Equality

A strong advocate for safety in our schools and communities, Missy started a petition calling for common-sense locked doors and camera protocols in our Virginia Beach Elementary Schools. This petition gained over 2,500 signatures and led to real change.

And after years of inaction on the state level, Missy and others brought forward the Equal Rights Amendment to the Virginia Beach City Council, where it passed unanimously.
