My family and I are proud West Duluth residents raising our daughter in a neighborhood we love. My experience lies in engaging and mobilizing diverse groups of people, especially those often left out of the political process, to shape policy solutions at the state and local level. My career has included advocacy for access to healthcare, worker protections, and ending homelessness.
I’m a mother, wife, avid trail runner and believer in strong communities. Both my parents were pastors and I grew up living in and understanding the needs of both rural and urban communities. I’ve called Duluth home since graduating from the University of Minnesota Duluth 15 years ago. Shortly after, my husband and I purchased a house in the Denfeld neighborhood.
I am currently serving my first term in the Minnesota House of Representatives and am seeking re-election for a second term. I serve on the Health and Human Services Committee, Subcommittee on Aging and Long Term Care, and State Government Finance.
I look forward to connecting with you. In the meantime, please check out my Facebook and Twitter for more frequent updates.
