Biography and Background
I’m a proud sister, daughter, and granddaughter to amazing people that have shown me the value of serving our community. I want to set the same example for my nieces.
Idaho is a great state, and I will do my part to make sure it stays that way.
As a fourth-generation Idahoan, I’m blessed to work with and live near my family. As the CFO of our family farm, I spend my days balancing the books, creating budgets, and making sure we’re taking care of our employees. I know what it means for people to depend on you, and I make every effort to not let them down. After working on many state and national boards throughout my career, I served as the first woman president of the National Potato Council (2020-2021).
In addition to helping manage the farm, I also run the consulting business I started almost 15 years ago. I focus on strategy and marketing for small business owners, and I love supporting other dedicated entrepreneurs who dream big and work even harder.
During my first term in the Idaho House (2018-2020), I took an active role on the Joint Finance-Appropriation Committee (JFAC), the Resources and Conservation Committee, and the Environment, Energy, & Technology Committee. I sponsored over four dozen bills that became law, including critical budgets that increased teacher pay, funded state emergency services, and protected Idaho’s natural resources. In addition, I took the lead on safeguarding Idaho’s water and helping local business owners protect private property.

Article I, Section 2. (H): While a comprehensive overhaul is needed, universal participation isn’t defined.
Article I, Section 3. (C): Prior to the passage of the 17th amendment, many states had adopted a “primary”-type system that considered the citizens’ preference versus relying solely on legislative discretion. Even if a repeal were to pass, it’s unlikely that states would return to the legislature-only process, making a change to the current operations of the Senate unlikely. However, it would open the door to shifting the focus of state races from how a legislator will deal with state and local issues to how one might vote on the election of a federal Senator.
Article I, Section 4. (A): Backing the U.S. dollar with gold or silver creates a national security issue. Switching to a financial system based on precious metals opens the door to other nations stockpiling and controlling these resources, leaving U.S. finances vulnerable to manipulation by foreign powers.
Article X: The current wording does not clearly define if management and administration of federal lands also comes with sole financial responsibility for obligations like fire suppression. In any given year, the cost for fire suppression alone on federal lands could use up Idaho’s entire general fund.
