Highlights of Community Involvement: Spent a year with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, during which time she responded to a flood and helped construct five houses.
Why She Ran: “I was a little disappointed at what I saw in the House. I think some people weren’t reflecting the values of my community and certainly not mine, and I wanted to make some sort of change and I realized that the best way to do that is to have a seat at the table.”
Her Focus: “The main focus for the state is going to be education and how it’s connected to jobs and the economy. We cannot have a solid, functioning economy over the long term that’s competitive if we don’t have the talent and the human capital that we need.”
