As her nickname states, Parker's main issue is high-speed rail -- nationwide and to Virginia Beach, Richmond, Roanoke and Bristol. She calls rail a national security issue and believes it will help reduce America's addition to oil.

She stresses high speed rail will make Virginia safer for families because more trains mean less traffic on our roads and create cleaner air and water.

Parker calls for fiscally-conservative government.

She has a graduate degree is in Business Administration, an undergraduate degree in Business Management, holds a certificate in Software Engineering Administration equivalent to a second master's degree and is a certified Information System Security Professional.
