Biography and Background
Greetings! I have lived in Idaho for almost 50 years. I am a graduate of the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Education. My husband, Bill, Jr., and I have 4 children and 11 grandchildren, all of whom I adore. I have worked along-side my husband for 44 years to run their law practice, their corporation that consists of a cattle ranch, commercial real estate development and a partnership that includes commercial and residential rentals. In addition to my work in the legal field, and running our family businesses, I spent over 15 years teaching Paralegal and Legal Assistant students at Lewis Clark State College, in Lewiston.
I believe in hard work and will not shy away from getting the job done. I am a hands-on cattlewoman, driving a semi to haul hay, or move cattle from town to the mountain pastures. I am the family’s chief brander and work along with my family to get the ranching duties done. In addition to my busy day-to-day life, I am completing my 1st term as a Representative in the Idaho House. I serve on the Education, Commerce and Human Resources, and Agricultural Affairs Committees. It has been a great honor to serve the people.
In addition, I serve as the President of the Foundation Board for Lewis Clark State College, am a member of the Board of Directors of Idaho Business for Education and am a member of the Board for the Idaho Community Foundation.
I am a past President of the Idaho Association of Legal Professionals, and past National Director for the National Association of Legal professionals.
My background in the legal field, in education, in agriculture, and in business, will allow me to work directly in all of these areas to find practical solutions to the problems that directly affect the lives of those living, working, and raising families in one of the most beautiful areas of our State, District 6. With your help, my practical, common-sense, hard work approach to finding solutions, along with my proven leadership skills, I will work tirelessly to serve the people of Idaho and in particular, those in District 6.
I will stand with you and will not allow my fundamental values to be compromised by outside interests when making decisions for you…YOU deserve better than that and I can say with confidence, that I will be a voice of reason, a voice that will listen, and a voice that will fight for Stronger Agriculture, Stronger Education, and Stronger Business policies, all for a Stronger Idaho.
TOGETHER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
