Working towards a Better Colorado for Everyone!

My candidacy is deeply personal to me - my roots in House District 18 run deep. I grew up here and much of my family still lives right here - I am running for this district, city and state I love. I went to high school right here in D-11 and even chose The University of Colorado when choosing universities because Colorado means that much to me! I am absolutely committed to building a Better Colorado for my neighbors, friends and family who are living, working and playing in our communities here in Colorado Springs, Manitou and all of House District 18. I know the issues we face and I'm ready to work hard for the preservation and prosperity of our home.


I am the granddaughter of immigrants, a farmer and soldier as well as a businessman and a preacher's daughter from the Western Slope. My father is a small business owner and we come from a tradition of perseverance and hard work. I know our best days are ahead of us in Colorado. I am committed to partnering with businesses, critical industries and the community to find fiscally responsible and innovative solutions to our job gaps and growth potential. I am also focused on educational excellence, community-based opportunities and safety infrastructures to ensure we are leaving our future generations a Colorado better than we could have ever envisioned!


Now is the time for fresh leadership - hands-on solutions to our most critical issues. I am the only candidate who has walked the walk and I will continue to do that for each of you. You deserve a present and committed Representative! My promise to you is to be that very Representative for YOU!


I Have Your Back!
