Burns has worked as a program evaluator for the Louisiana State Department of Education, Grant Reader for the United States Department of Education, and a Teacher/Administrator in Monroe City Schools. She is a member of the Democratic State Central Committee and served as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention from 1992 to 2008.
Burns earned her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Louisiana, Masters from Loyola University, MS in Teaching Chemistry from Southern University, and BS in Science and Mathematics from Grambling State University.
Burns ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana House of Representatives District 17. She faced Democrats Otis Chisley, Marcus Hunter and Brenda Shelling in the primary election on October 22, 2011. Because Louisiana uses a blanket primary system, a candidate can be declared the overall winner of the seat by garnering 50 percent +1 of the vote in the primary. However, since no candidate reached this threshold, a general election took place on November 19 between Hunter and Burns. Hunter narrowly defeated Burns to win the seat.
