During the last 4 years, I have worked diligently to support public education, bring jobs and economic development to District 4, and focused my efforts on becoming an expert in the areas of water management and best land management practices for our state. I've fought to protect consumers and also protect our most vulnerable children. My work at the legislature is far from over and I would be honored to represent the constituents of Legislative District 4 as State Senator.
I am a former public school teacher, businesswoman and a native Arizonan with the time, education, experience and dedication to do the job right. Although District 4 is geographically large, I am accessible to my constituents. During the last 2 terms as your State Representative, I have helped many constituents navigate bureaucratic obstacles, assisted them with letters of support, and provided tours of the Capitol to help them better understand the legislative process. I am active year round to support your interests, not just during the legislative session.
I am completely dedicated to changing the culture of the Arizona State Legislature. I'm a second generation Arizonan. I was born and raised in Yuma. I come from a close-knit farming family with a devotion to education and a history of community service.
