I have dedicated my career to creating opportunities for families to live their healthiest lives. I was lucky and found my passion early. Right after I graduated from Wilmington College, I was selected for a Gift of Sight mission to the Philippines and spent two weeks working with a team of optical professionals to provide eye exams and glasses to more than 14,000 people in need. When I returned home, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my career working to create healthier communities.
During my career, I’ve worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, March of Dimes, and Positively Kids. Even though the mission of each organization is different, mine was not: to work diligently to improve the health of every member of our community. It was this drive that motivated me to run for Assembly in 2018 and run for re-election this year.
WHY I'M RUNNING
As a community health advocate and a mom, I believe that every kid deserves to grow up healthy. That’s why I’ve dedicated my career to working with community partners and families to provide services to families who kids need and extra hand. From my work reducing pre-term births by 30 percent at March of Dimes to requiring testing of newborns for congenital heart defects, I’m proud of the work I’ve been part of for Nevada’s families. In fact, seeing the positive impacts this work had on families is what motivated me to run for the Assembly in 2018.
I am running for re-election because I want to continue to deliver for hardworking Nevada families.
