I am a native Idahoan and enrolled in the Nez Perce tribe who believes now’s the time to step into leadership for our great state, and our United States of America. I was adopted into the family of Wayne and Sharon Steinocker and grew up in Idaho’s Magic Valley. I met my husband, Randy, while going to school at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, and relocated to the Treasure Valley after we met. We were married in 1993. Shortly after getting married, I returned to Northern Idaho to complete my education at the University of Idaho in Moscow. Upon graduation in 1998, Randy and I moved to New Mexico where I began my career in the medical field as a Registered Dietician.
After 15 years in the Southwest, Randy and I returned to Idaho in 2013 to make our home in the Treasure Valley. As I returned to Idaho, I continued my work with the medical community being certified as a diabetes educator working with adults and children and their families as they navigate the trials of living with diabetes. My commitment to help and support people with quality health care has been a big part of my life.
My husband, Randy is a pastor on staff with Eagle Christian Church, and we have one daughter who is planning to attend college in the fall. As a family we are proud to call Idaho home, and love the diversity and opportunities that Idaho and the United States of America have provided for us. I am committed to ensuring that those opportunities continue to be a part of the lives of citizens for years to come.
As I enter into politics, I will be led by my commitment to hard work, my commitment to high ethical standards, and a desire to do what is right for our state and our country. Now’s the time for Brenda Bourn for US Senate!
