As a mom, professional, and community volunteer, I learned the tremendous value of caring for each other, finding stability, and accessing opportunity.

I believe in excellent, not just good schools; access to healthcare services; stewarding our lands and keeping our homes safe from wildfires.

In Salem, I'll fight for:

A Thriving Central Oregon Economy:

  • Support economic solutions that create clean energy jobs.
  • Strengthen our local economy and grow our workforce.

Wildfire Preparation + Recovery:

  • Advocate for policies that reduce hazards that fuel fires and destroy homes.
  • Create incentives to make our homes and lands resilient.


  • Expand mental health services, including telehealth.
  • Protect women's access to health and reproductive care.

Housing + Infrastructure:

  • Support housing options and private/public partnerships to increase housing supply.
  • Advocate for housing solutions without creating unnecessary sprawl.
  • Champion safe streets and access to transportation options.


  • Elevate apprenticeship programs and creative pathways for our students to succeed in the workplace.
  • Honor that public schools are a hub of our community and rekindle that sense of shared purpose after a challenging two years.


  • Address the childcare shortage, as two out of three kids under five have no childcare spot.
  • Support partnerships to create more spots through the micro-center childcare model.
