Why Vote For Me?
After moving to Chandler in the late-90s, Arizona is the place I call home. It’s an amazing state but the things that make it successful need to stay in place. Ironically, many fleeing high-tax, high-regulation states are moving to low-tax, low-regulation states like Arizona, but they’re bringing their liberal policies and voting habits with them. We need to make sure we don’t let this leftward push ruin everything that’s working in Arizona. I’ll work to protect school choice, teacher pay increases, and strong K-12 support. I’ll advocate for secure borders and the enforcement of our laws. I’ll work for a strong economy and safe neighborhoods. And I’ll oppose efforts to raise taxes or give government greater control over our lives and daily decisions.
As a servant leader for the last several decades, I am committed to you and I will work tirelessly to get the job done! I’m a wife and mother, blessed with three great kids. I’ve worked in real estate for the last 15 years and have served in a variety of community and industry positions. I ask for your vote so I can get to work with Representative Jeff Weninger and do all I can for Arizona and our district!

ON THE ISSUES
Each child deserves the best education possible. Parents typically know what is best for their child’s unique academic needs, and it helps when parents have a choice about where their children attend school. I believe school budgets need to be reformed and accountable, while being focused on the classroom and better teacher pay.
JOBS AND THE ECONOMY
It is easy for legislators to come up with costly programs to spend your money in our State. However, making sure we have incoming revenue and an environment which is good for businesses and jobs takes much more expertise and experience.
IMMIGRATION AND BORDER SECURITY
I believe the main role in government is to keep our citizens safe. Yet Arizona has been negatively impacted in too many ways by the lack of protection and security at the border. I have visited the border to observe the wall and have learned about the many issues involving illegal border crossings and, most importantly, drugs and human trafficking.
LIFE AND FREEDOM
I believe that the sanctity of life, protecting the unborn, and strong family values are important for our future. I also believe it is vital that we safeguard the freedoms laid out in the Constitution.
