Growing up with a renowned OBGYN father, reverence & respect for the miracle of LIFE became part of my DNA. As a lawmaker, my goal will be defending the foundational values of life, family, and religious freedom. I’m an Arizona native, married to my sweetheart 40 years and we have raised 4 children. I have two science degrees in Nursing and Clinical Psychology with certifications in Cardiovascular ICU & Emergency Room Medicine. I have 30 years’ experience as a grassroots volunteer for the GOP. I know that legislation that strengthens the family also strengthens the economy and our society as a whole. I will make it my priority to defend 1st amendment rights, our freedom of conscience, and all of our conservative American value
