I am a mother. I am an activist. I am a progressive.

I was born and raised in Colorado, am a life-long Democrat, and have been a resident of HD28 for the last 10 years. 

I am dedicated to promoting universal health care; combating climate change through a transition to renewable energy production and a jobs program to train and place oil and gas workers in renewable energy fields; revitalizing the middle class through union membership and support, tying the minimum wage to inflation, support of local businesses over large small-business killing conglomerates, and increased employee benefits; increasing public education funding and quality; dismantling TABOR in any and every manner feasible; free public college tuition; reforming the criminal justice and law enforcement systems; supporting and expanding mental health care for all; veterans issues; and combating the causes of homelessness rather than combating the homeless; to name a few. 

In the 2016 presidential campaign, there were countless examples of ordinary people coming together to affect change at all levels of government, and it galvanized my personal desire to become more involved. I was elected as an at-large delegate to the DNC in Philadelphia, then was elected to the positions of Democratic Party Chair of House District 28, Precinct Committee Person, Deputy Secretary of the Progressive Democrats of Colorado initiative, and numerous committees at the House District, Congressional District, County, and State levels. Ultimately,it is up to those of us at the local level to make changes that can support growth and change at the national level, which is why I'm running to represent House District 28 in the Colorado State House of Representatives.

Our House District is unique in its demography. We have residents of nearly every socioeconomic, age, gender, and cultural background. We both need and deserve a representative who understands what it means to have children enrolled in the Jeffco School District, who has had to make the decision of whether the financial hit that comes with filling that prescription or making that doctor's appointment is really worth it, who has worked for stagnant wages as the cost of living increases exponentially and wealth concentrates at the top. I was a stay-at-home mother for years because the cost of child care was higher than my wages would have been, and I've stayed at dead-end jobs with sub-par wages because I've feared losing my health care and benefits. No one should ever have to face these issues, and it's the responsibility of those creating policy to address and correct them to the benefit of all our citizens. This kind of change must happen at the local level.

We need to come together as a community and work for every single resident in our House District. We need to listen to every single voice, need, and hardship, and it is up to us to hold the state of Colorado and the federal government accountable for addressing each and every one of those issues.

I recently testified at the Jefferson County Commissioner's meeting regarding the request to upzone the Dinosaur Ridge development area to include car dealerships. During my testimony, I reminded the three county commissioners that they were elected to represent the people, their constituents, who depend on them to protect and preserve their interests, which very much include increasingly-dwindling natural resources, and not businesses with whom they may have positive relationships or who might promise increased revenue for the county. I unequivocally believe that accountability is the key component in ensuring that our elected officials are working for We the People.
