Biography and Background

As a proud Idahoan, mother, grandmother, gun owner, small business owner and many other things, I was blessed to raise my children on a small family farm. It was there that they learned the importance of putting in a hard day’s work, and of earning your way forward.

As an Idahoan, I know how critical it is that we take care of our state.

As a mother and a grandmother, I know how precious life is from conception to natural death. God created our children perfectly in His image.

As a former school board member, I understand how frustrating it is to have your local authority usurped by a state or federal mandate that is unfunded and often unnecessary.

I served in the Idaho House of Representatives, and in the Idaho Senate, retiring to work for the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, protecting one of our most basic freedoms.

As a small business owner and farmer, I understand the challenges of being a small business owner.

Nothing is more important to preserving our state and Nation than protecting our first freedoms, that God has bestowed upon us.

Top 3 Issues

Issue 1

I am the mother of five , four of whom attended public school one home school. I was always active and engaged in their education a former PTA president, and school board member. I am the grandmother of 11. I have mentored many children on our family farm. Many will tell you that my influence and love are why they stayed in school and graduated. One young man told me he was the first on both sides of his family to graduate from high school because. I have two developmentally handicapped grandchildren. I will never feel the struggle the way their parents do, I feel pain of challenges they face to have their child’s needs addressed, their voices heard. I listen to the teachers and parents, stories of success and failure. The decisions I make are made with everyone’s needs in mind.

Issue 2

With my last breath I will defend, protect and work to restore full second amendment rights. Our first freedoms are what set us apart as “the land of the free, and the home of the brave.” As I speak with hundreds of veterans of so many wars, conflicts, deployments, and divisions of the military, I am fully aware of the sacrifice of life, body parts, heart, soul, and family that has been made to keep us free. I feel the sorrow of so many as they watch the rights that they gave their sacred honor and more to protect slipping away. I will never stop defending the Second Amendment.

Issue 3

I believe the adage that the hand that rocks the cradle shapes the world. Traditional family values built this country and created American Exceptionalism that made this the strongest nation in the world. Strong families, make strong communities and a strong nation. Being independent from government handouts, folks having the ability to use money as they see fit to help neighbors, strengthen churches without the government taking their tax dollars and deciding for them is one of the most important issues in this country and state today. Protecting our babies and our children is the most important thing we must do in this life. Shame on us to allow the sacrifice of the unborn, and the sacrifice of the reproductive future of our children. Idahoans want to be left alone to care for their families. They want to own their homes and pay their own way and their way forward.
