In Ameagle, she was surrounded by mountaintop removal coal mining and was awakened to its effects on communities, families, clean water, and the land. She saw her water poisoned and wants to protect her little brother from mountaintop removal. "We need to end mountaintop removal for the health and safety of West Virginians. My little brother is the next generation, and he is going to grow up with this all around him. He deserves clean air.
