My husband Tim and I got married in 1987. Shortly after, we became residents and small business owners in Lakeville. My public service began when our children started attending Lakeville Public Schools. I never dreamed of entering politics, but through the guidance of friends and family (and a whole lot of prayer), I realized I needed to do more for my community. It's an honor to have served in the Minnesota State Legislature and I'm asking for your vote so I can bring the voices of 56B to the capitol once again.


For fun, my family enjoys biking, golfing, snowmobiling, skiing, and boating together.


More details about me are below, but let's connect if you want to learn more!
