Meet the Candidate

I know better days are ahead.

Like many Pennsylvanians, I have lived paycheck-to-paycheck. I am a single mother, struggling to do whatever necessary to make sure my sons had a better life than I did. That often meant working multiple jobs, even while going back to college.

I have spent time in state government leading other interns in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, dealing directly with state legislators on policies and issues; attending committee hearings, and house and senate sessions; and writing briefings for the Lt. Governor’s office.

While working in Harrisburg, I saw firsthand just how dysfunctional our state government really is. I saw the State Capital as a place where the people’s priorities are disregarded and common-sense legislation goes to die, making life harder for us in rural Pennsylvania.

I have considerable real-world experience mediating between parties in conflict with each other. As a case manager in a family homeless shelter, a coach for Odyssey of the Mind, a restaurant manager, and the mother of two boys whose personalities are like night and day, I meet each challenge with passion, understanding and a bulldog determination to find common ground and work united to make progress towards a better future for all.

I believe, as you do, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

It’s Time!

Time we put people and principles before politics.
Time for us to come together and fix what’s been broken for too long.
Time to elect someone who is ONE OF US to stand up and fight for US.

This is why I am running for State Representative of the 84th District.
