Why I'm Running

I am inspired to run for State Representative because of my lifelong desire to ensure that every child has the best chance possible to fulfill her dreams.  My own personal story helped shape these aspirations: my mother was raised in an orphanage until the age of 18 and was never able to complete high school. She raised me alone, working two jobs and struggling to find quality childcare during her long shifts away from home. Yet she instilled in me the belief that education was the most important pathway to a better future. Through my mother’s determination, and the support of social services when we needed them the most, my life trajectory is dramatically different than I thought possible 40 years ago.
