Grant is a dentist who had a practice on Loch Raven Boulevard in Baltimore for more than 20 years before she went to work for the state health department, retiring in 2017. She calls herself a health care advocate. She’s been active with Health Care for the Homeless and traveled to Central American countries on dental missions. She says she’s making her first run for public office “to be a positive voice for the diverse residents of the 7th Congressional District.” Her goal is “to connect our communities around the kitchen table concerns that impact all of us,” including affordable health care and education and training programs, clean water and safe infrastructure.
