Commissioner Rheubottom moved to the Outer Banks as a child and graduated from Manteo High School. She earned her BSBA in Finance and Accounting from East Carolina University. She has worked with the County of Dare for the past 15 years, and has been the Director of Older Adult Services at the Thomas A. Baum Center for the past 12 years.
Commissioner Rheubottom and her husband, Jeff, have a daughter, Sydney. Keeping Kill Devil Hills a great place to live and raise kids is the motivation that inspired her to run for public office.
Commissioner Rheubottom served on many boards throughout the county and State of North Carolina. She encourages the citizens of Kill Devil Hills to be- come involved, and to communicate ideas and opinions to the Board of Commissioners - to tell the Board "what you want."
