Biographical Info:

Having been raised and spending most of my adult life as a member in a high control group, I this has made me passionate in my fight for freedom. My history has made me the person that I am today, a fighter for freedom with great love for my neighbor and country. I love volunteering for our local high school programs and very active in our local school board in the fight for our children and community. I am a 4th generation Yuman, I am Arizonan at heart. I had the privilege of being raised and currently reside in Yuma and had the opportunity to have lived for some time in the Tucson area, this helps me understand the needs of our district. What has kept me here in the beautiful southwest part of our state? Love, we are nothing without love, God, county, family, and friends. along with volunteering for local school programs and being involved in the community.


My motivation for running was due to the current state of our country. To have our freedoms stripped away eliminated one by one due to the government’s forced shutdown.  The attack on our children’s education and our educators’ radical training at our schools.  My priorities are protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving individual liberty, protect life, education and help preserve our water supply.
