Meet Madeleine

To this day, I remember the moment I decided Brookhaven would be my forever home. When I moved to Georgia in 2008, I had the opportunity to drive through Brookhaven to meet a friend who lived off Dresden Drive. I was immediately struck by the charming quality of our neighborhoods’ beautiful homes and majestic trees. Children were playing in the yards, neighbors were chatting and friendly faces were waving back at me. What a tranquil haven in the middle of metro Atlanta! I knew Brookhaven was where I was meant to put down roots, raise a family and give back to my community.

Since then, I have witnessed every day how our neighbors are our city’s greatest strength. We have built a beautiful community and a wonderful quality of life. I believe that as Brookhaven continues to develop, our leaders must ensure we maintain the character of our neighborhoods. As your Councilmember, I will listen to you and lead in the best interest of our district for a bright future.
