About Me

I grew up in Herriman and have lived in House District 52 for over seventeen years—I remember when it was mostly farmland and neighborhoods. Since then, our district has seen tremendous growth, opportunity and unique challenges. My husband and I have chosen to raise our family here in the South Valley—I love the community and the people who live here. 

I am passionate about what makes this district great—its people. I wholeheartedly believe in the principles of conservatism, free-markets and the power of community. In an era of government handouts and “democratic socialists,” I am uniquely qualified to reduce the burden of government and share the message of compassionate conservatism. As your representative, I am committed to continuing to work with you and for you. 

I currently serve on the following general and interim committees: Health and Human Services,  Government Operations, Higher Education Appropriations, Retirement and Independent Entities Appropriations and the Economic Development and Workforce Services. 

I have worked as Director of Community Relations for Congressman Chris Stewart, and most recently have been the development director for a conservative think tank that focuses on faith, family and free-markets. I have served as a Board Member and Flight Leader for Utah Honor Flight, Vice President of Professional Republican Women, Vice Chair of the UFCRs, and over the years have worked on presidential, congressional, and local campaigns.

 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science with an emphasis in American Government from Utah Valley University and my Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Utah.
