Matielyn is running for State Senate because she wants to see more compassion in politics. As a wife, mother, millennial, and woman of faith, she is deeply committed to using her gifts and talents in service to her community.
A native of New Orleans, LA, Matielyn graduated from Georgia State University with degrees in Political Science and Social Foundations of Education. In 2008, Matielyn became a Field Organizer for President Obama’s campaign in North Carolina. Following the historic win, she moved to Virginia, then Ohio, where she worked in education and ministry over the years.
Matielyn returned to Georgia and currently works for a global nonprofit as a Talent and Learning Project Specialist. She’s excited about the prospect of flipping this seat from red to blue and wants to encourage others to get involved in the political process beyond voting.
