I love America and cherish the freedom we have to pursue happiness taking whatever avenue is best for our families. I believe that we all have the right to protect our families from harm, the second amendment maintains that right and I strongly support it. I am adopted and so thankful my mother chose life for me, I will stand for life for all the unborn. I was raised on a small family farm, we raised our own beef and fruits and vegetables, I appreciate small farms and their value. Living on a farm, I learned the importance of hard work and what it takes to be mostly self sustaining for food. My work history began with picking strawberries every summer to earn money for school clothes, once I was old enough, I worked in retail and food service. I worked in the public sector, for the Department of Justice as an advocate for children. I have been in church leadership, working with teens, and leading worship. I have been politically active for many years, volunteering for campaigns and working to help get republicans elected. I am currently serving on the Washington County Republican Central Committee.
