Dee Watson is the Libertarian candidate for North Carolina House of Representatives District 49.
Dee has devoted her professional life to oncology research. She believes it’s the most effective way to minimize the devastating impact of cancer.
She was born in upstate New York near Buffalo. The network of academic institutions and industry in the Triangle made the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill her first choice for graduate school in 1996.
She met her husband there, and in 2003 they moved to Cary, to be close to the SAS daycare.
Dee was a statistician at Duke University for 10 years and contracted to the pharmaceutical industry as a statistical programmer for 10 years. She’s currently a statistical programmer in clinical trials at Provoniz, a contractor for GlaxoSmithKline.
