Meet the Candidate
Running For:State House
Occupation:Science Program Coordinator, Grand Canyon University; Clinical Cytogenetics Technologist
Education:Bachelor of Science, Biological Sciences; Cytogenetics Certification, CG(ASCP)CM for Laboratory Personnel
I received my Bachelor of Science, Biological Sciences at Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. I also received my training at Henry Ford Hospital as a cytogenetics technologist and currently hold an American Society for Clinical Pathology Cytogenetics Certification, CG(ASCP)CM for Laboratory Personnel. Early in my career I also was licensed in the state of Michigan as an insurance and financial advisor.
Currently, I work full-time at Grand Canyon University as a Science Program Coordinator, and my past experiences includes working in the Molecular Medicine Laboratory at St. Joseph’s Hospital performing infectious and genetic disease testing. I’ve served on the Peoria Unified School District Governing since 2014 and have held leadership roles as the Board President 2017, and Board Clerk 2015, 2018 and 2019.
My husband and I celebrating 34 years of marriage. Our youngest daughter Angela graduated at Grand Canyon University in Hotel Management and our daughter Kayla graduated in 2017 from Oakland University. Both of our daughters attended our district schools, Desert Harbor Elementary and graduated from Centennial High School.
I grew up just outside of Detroit in a low-income family neighborhood. I had support of a loving family, perseverance to learn and benefits of attending school just a few blocks from my childhood home. I was the first person in my immediate family to graduate high school and the first to complete a college degree.
As a conservative, I believe problems are best solved by applying the principles of limited government. As a Constitutionalist, I know solutions must respect our Constitutionally guaranteed rights. As your Representative, these principles have guided — and will continue — to guide my votes. In just my first term, I’ve won awards for my conservative voting record — improving accountability in educational spending and academic standards, promoting school choice and parental rights, defending the sanctity of life, vigorously fighting against governmental overreach and mandates, and strengthening the Second Amendment and religious freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution. I will continue to fight for secure elections, strong borders, and full restoration of our medical and individual liberties.
