About

Many of Helen’s friends say, that she is unable to say “no” in response to any request for help. Not surprisingly, Helen has volunteered for a number of organizations including serving as treasurer of the FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Auxiliary, a member of the outreach committee of her church in Southern Pines, spent many hours volunteering at her children’s schools.
Part of her commitment to her community comes from her mother, who instilled these values in Helen. She understands the need for giving back to our communities, and as your State Senator, Helen make our communities a priority in Raleigh.

In both life changing situations, Helen was reminded of the true value of community. Helen got through her battles because of her community. Now, she wants to serve her community in the State Senate so they have an advocate in their corner.
