Biography and Background

I grew up here in Ada County on a dairy farm just outside of Kuna, and I now live with my husband of 20 years and our three children just a field away from that same farm. I attended Nampa Christian Schools from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade and our three children are now students there as well. After high school, I attended Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and a minor in Public Administration. I have held positions in both public and private sector organizations in land use and transportation planning, as well as grant administration. My family and I are very involved in our local church. Our family and our faith are central to our lives.

I believe holding an elected office is a distinct privilege, and I do not take for granted the opportunity to serve my fellow Idahoans.

Top 3 Issues

Issue 1

Quality education is my top my priority. We have a responsibility to ensure our children receive an excellent education. I believe there are four main components to a successful education system: parental involvement, local control, school choice and an allocation of resources to meet each student’s needs.

Issue 2

Improving our transportation system and ensuring there is adequate funding to meet the growing demands across our state has been a consistent priority of mine since coming in to office. I have long sought ways to increase transportation funding without increasing taxes, and I am proud to say that I have been part of several solutions to increase general fund spending on our roads and bridges both for maintenance and expansion.

Issue 3

Protecting our constitutional rights is always a top priority. I have staunchly defended the right to life for the pre-born, advocated for our religious freedoms, supported free speech, and have defended our right to keep and bear arms guaranteed under the second amendment.
