I was raised on a farm in Bingham County and graduated from Blackfoot High School. My husband and I own a family farm.We have four children, 2 who are farm partners with us, 1 who is deceased, and our only daughter is currently living in Japan.
I volunteered in my children’s schools, served on the Snake River School District Board of Trustees and was a state representative from 2012-2018. I am currently a commissioner on the Idaho Public Charter School Commission and the Idaho Potato Commission. In the private sector I am a board member of the Idaho Youth Ranch, where I am on the Programs Committee.
