Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am not running for office to seek fame or power and certainly not for the riches. I am stepping up to serve and represent my community, a community that my family has lived, worked, and served in for 3 generations. I will not have every answer, but I will listen and collaborate and together we will make a better future. Right now we need a representative in House District 30 who is not the stereotypical polished speech makers, we need a Representative who is adaptable, working, and in touch with the diverse people of this community and beyond to our State. I have worked with our justice systems, mediated crisis, taught college, and owned businesses. I have proven my ability to adapt, negotiate, and affect change.
