EJ moved to Baltimore to attend the oldest Catholic Womens' College, Notre Dame of Maryland University. At 17, she transplanted to Baltimore County after her Mother’s death from Colon Cancer. EJ lived and set down her roots with her Aunt and Uncle in the Chatterleigh Neighborhood in Towson, Maryland.
After she graduated, and when interviewing with the newly created 2nd congressional district’s Congresswomen, Helen D. Bentley (R), EJ found her first like-minded fierce female political mentor. Through EJ’s volunteerism and grass-roots political activism as well as numerous political campaigns staff positions, EJ helped drive the party and individual campaign organizations with a strong vision, political shrewdness, and uncompromising determination.
After interning for “Maryland’s Ironlady” and then for Maryland State Party Chairwoman, Joyce Loyns-Terhes, EJ met the Annapolis House minority leader, Delegate Ellen Sauerbrey (R-Baltimore County). They became fast friends. In Ellen's second gubernatorial campaign, EJ rose through the very competitive Baltimore area grassroots ranks to secure the position on Ellen's gubernatorial campaign as Deputy Finance Director. She also worked for then-Congressman Bob Ehrlich's campaigns and his races for governor.

EJ also brings an extensive background in the health arena. In this professional arena, she has experience working for healthcare nonprofits and health technology companies. She worked in Governor Larry Hogan’s administration in the Office of Children as well as the Department of Health (MDH) and served as Maryland’s point person representing the Lt. Governor’s Office with the General of Aberdeen Proving Grounds on national, state, and local efforts to combat the opioid public health crisis. Additionally, while serving Marylanders in the Hogan-Rutherford Administration, EJ was key point person for the State of Maryland’s Rural Healthcare Plan. While serving in this capacity, EJ was able to leverage her solid solution-oriented, can-do-spirit to build bi-partisan cooperation and relationship amongst her vast local, state and federal networks to benefit all Marylanders access to quality healthcare.
As a devoted wife and mother, EJ is often found cheering at local high school sports games, or after Sunday Mass, hiking with the family around Loch Raven or “down the Country” in Bowley’s Quarter enjoying the Bay and sharing in activities with her extended family on the weekend.
