Biographical Info:

I am an Arizona native and a 4th generation Tucsonan. A graduate of both the University of Arizona and Grand Canyon University, I hold a Master’s degree in Organizational Psychology. With over 35 years of working in leadership roles, as a business owner and entrepreneur, I have gained valuable knowledge and experience and have enjoyed building great relationships and helping others find success. My husband of over 30 years, and I have three grown children, who were all born and raised in Oro Valley where I am active in my community and in my church. I have been lifelong Republican and have strived to uphold and promote conservative values. My hobbies include pickleball, gardening, oil painting, and volunteering at her church and local charities.

Statement:

I am running to ensure Republicans keep this seat in conservative Republican hands. Our vote margin in the Arizona State House is just one vote, so Democrats win every time a State Representative betrays our cause. I’ll be the conservative voice you can count on. I will effectively work on and advance valuable common-sense legislation to defend the rights, freedoms, success and safety of all Arizonans.
