Biographical Info:

I’m a mother of 5 and grandma of 25, and I’m involved in helping our returning veterans through a non-profit organization that I run. I know freedom isn’t free – my son Brent lost both legs fighting for us in Iraq to keep America free! 5th generation Arizonian and was born and raised in Mesa. I have been an advocate for our returning Wounded Heroes for over 17 years. I founded and run a non-profit to assist these brave young men and women to return home and find their new normal. Have served on the Military Family Relief Fund for 12 years with AZ Department of Veteran Services. Have been active in my Legislative District as a Precinct Committeeman and leadership positions in the Legislative District.


Arizona needs better election integrity and ballot security. I want school districts to focus on educating our kids, not indoctrinating them. I want to support police and fire and give them the tools they need. I want secure borders, our wall finished, and immigration laws enforced. I’m pro-life, pro-school choice, and I want strong families and communities. Care for your veterans that have served this great Country. I want my children and grandchildren to grow up in the America I know and love.
