Biographical Info:

I am highly engaged with our community and volunteer for several political and civic organizations including the Yavapai County Republican Party, the State and National Federation of Republican Women, the Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association, the Armed Woman of America, and the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue. Having lived in LD1 since 1971, I have a deep respect for our rich history and am dedicated to protecting and strengthening Arizona. After working as a nurse in this community, while teaching nursing at Yavapai College, I am accustomed to making a difference in the lives of others. I come from a long line of public servants in my family and am called to serve the community in which I was raised.


I am re-running for this office to make a difference in the lives of others by serving as a legislator in the Arizona State House of Representatives. I was honored to do so this past session by sponsoring HCR2042 (sex trafficking; minors; natural life) and HB2486 (parent-child relationship; restoration) as two of several bills that protect and defend family values.
Public service runs in my family and I am called to serve. I am proud to be a life-long conservative Republican with priorities to protect and defend the Constitution, promote a strong border and election integrity, reduce the tax burden and government overregulation, maintain fiscal responsibility and economic opportunity, uphold the right to bear arms, defend life, supporting our troops and families, and the protection of state rights.
