I was born and raised in Ellensburg. My dad was a police chief and my mom started the Children’s Museum while raising my brother and me. I graduated from Ellensburg High School and am a proud Ellensburg Bulldog. Growing up in a small town, I learned the difference between right and wrong. I also learned the value of hard work.

We need a strong leader finally fighting for our right to quality affordable healthcare, an excellent education, and childcare. We need to protect our public lands, water, and air. I will stand up against the most powerful people and corporations – as I have my entire career – and always fight for what’s right. When I look at the people of the 8th district, I see just that – people. I see machinists, firefighters, police officers, teachers, and all the other hard-working people I will fight for every day. That’s who deserves a voice in our government, not billionaires and big corporations. Our representatives have been beholden to those billionaires and corporations for too long. They’re taking away healthcare from tho
