Elected Experience: I was first elected to the legislature in 2008. As ranking member on the House Environment Committee, I have been a leader in fighting against unnecessary and burdensome agency rules and regulations that undermine individual rights and our economic prosperity.
Other Professional Experience: Before being elected, I ran legislative offices for former Congressman George Nethercutt, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers and Representative Joel Kretz. Prior to that, I was a paralegal for 10 years.
Education: Legislative Energy Horizon Institute's Energy Policy Planning Program; Spokane Community College; Eastern Washington University.
Community Service: Mentoring local youth as a 4-H and horse camp leader.
Statement: Experience we can trust. For 18 years, I have worked hard for folks in the Seventh District, helping to resolve government problems. There is no greater priority to me than restoring the private sector jobs lost and getting folks back to work. State government has gone unchecked for too long and is threatening our very livelihoods and ability to be self-sufficient. I want to change how this state spends your tax dollars and what role state government ought to have.
As your Representative, I will continue to fight for individual rights, our families, small businesses, farms, and rural communities.
