WHY I'M RUNNING
I'd Be Honored to
The 13th Assembly District deserves someone who has strong ties to the community and can represent their interests.
I am a working mom of two kids and I love raising them in Wisconsin. I grew up in Brookfield and my extended family still lives here.
Although I have always been interested in government and politics, I was not planning on running in this race until residents were forced to decide between their health and their vote in the April election. As a health care provider and as a daughter of someone at high risk of this illness, I knew our leadership had to change.
We need reasonable people who have both public service and private industry experience in our legislature who are willing to work together to make people's lives better. I have that experience and I'd be honored if you chose me to represent you.
