A DESIRE FOR CHANGE
I’ve had a close relationship with my communities that I’ve worked for, but the Pandemic has changed everything. Like many of us, I have had time to reflect and refocus my vision and goals. More than ever before, I feel my experience, skills and passion have set me up to be a pivotal representative to my community. During this unstable time, you need someone approachable, honest, communicative, and hard working. My home is in Woodbury. My heart is in Woodbury. Let me serve you as your Washington County Commissioner, District 5.

I'm here to listen and lead
I’m tired of hearing the same old soundbites from our leaders. We’ve always done it this way, so that’s how we do it. It’s not good enough anymore. There is a new normal now. I want more services and opportunities for businesses to succeed. I want to relieve taxpayers by investing in our economic growth. I’ll work tirelessly for you like I have from the trenches. I’ve worked on the inside for residents and businesses for over a decade by influencing important changes that have benefited communities. It's time for me to help my own community.
Woodbury, I want to serve you and be your representative. I’ll be a leader that you can count on. I am empathetic, caring, and will really listen to your concerns. I’m a natural problem solver ready to address your needs as a public servant. I’m here for you, Woodbury.
