Economic Development

As the owner and operator of Sawyer Insurance and Financial Services with my husband, I have a unique understanding of the challenges and rewards that come with starting and running your own business. 


As a legislator and a small business owner, I will continue to advocate for lower taxes and support our local businesses in an effort to maintain a healthy economy. I also firmly believe it is important to get rid of the bureaucratic, and often burdensome red tape that comes with starting and maintaining a business. That’s why I have supported various regulatory reform bills this past session including:

  • The Regulatory Reform Act of 2020

  • The 2019 Building Code Regulatory Reform Act to make various changes and clarifications to NC Statutes governing the creation and enforcement of building codes

  • The ABC Regulatory Reform Bill to make various revisions to the ABC laws in North Carolina

  • The Land Use Regulatory Reform Act to clarify, consolidate, and reorganize the land-use regulatory laws of North Carolina 

  • An Act to clarify motor vehicle dealer regulatory requirements 


North Carolina has been ranked one of the most attractive states to do business. I hope to continue efforts to uphold this reputation through lower taxes, and fewer regulations.
