A Leader Formed by Community
For the past decade, Oregon has been my beloved home. I made the decision to move here from California with my teenage son, and ever since then, we've called the the Pacific North West home.
My love for the beautiful Pacific North West has only deepened with each passing year, rich in culture, natural wonders, and welcoming communities that make Oregon truly unique. I am very grateful to have the privilege of calling this place my home and continuing my journey by contributing to this vibrant State while fighting for the American people who live within.
As a fiercely independent single mother who has had to navigate the adversities of life, I understand firsthand the struggles that American families face on a daily basis. From financial hardship, rising costs of living, the struggle to put food on the table, and ever-increasing challenges of finding safe and secure housing, it can feel like we are constantly fighting an uphill battle. But through it all, I remain resolute in my determination to provide solutions in these uncertain times. I know that with hard work, perseverance, and a steadfast commitment to our values and principles, we can overcome these challenges TOGETHER and build a brighter future for ourselves and future generations.
