She helps to implement and develop the Affordable Health Care Act, commonly referred to as Obama Care. She provides health insurance coverage and access to health care throughout the district.

The women all met at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Though spread around the US, they get together for a run each year. They are best of friends and share an infectious laughs and deep friendship.
