Cynthia grew up in Springfield, Georgia, a tiny, rural town. She earned her B.S. in Mathematics from Spelman University in Atlanta, Georgia, and then earned a Master’s in Statistics at the University of North Florida. She eventually moved to Charlotte, NC to begin her career in the financial services industry.
Since moving to Charlotte 14 years ago, she has helped to re-charter the Charlotte Chapter of NAASC and served as chapter president from 2008 - 2012, encouraging young African American women from NC to pursue higher education. “…her education and work experience along with her rural upbringing , combined with her specialized work in the financial services industry and her familiarity with urban and suburban environments, make her an ideal candidate to understand and be responsive to the culture and economic needs of residents from all walks of life, who reside in District 09.”
