As a West Virginia native, I have a deep love for the people, values, and rugged landscapes that define this state. Our rural way of life is often misunderstood by those unfamiliar with Appalachian culture, which is why it is critical to have a representative that understands you and our connection to the land. I was born and raised on a cattle farm in Canaan Valley. From fixing fences and chasing cows to putting up hay for the winter, life on the farm shaped who I am today. I helped my family with their small businesses, including my father’s chimney sweep business, small ski area, and my mother’s restaurant and catering business. After graduating from Tucker County High School, I trained as a massage therapist and have run my own successful small business for 17 years.
This campaign is about empowering people. When we have quality healthcare and paid leave, we stay in the workforce and have more secure jobs. When we have educational opportunities, we gain the skills we need to succeed. When our democracy isn’t overrun with secret money, we have a government that works for us. Whether we’re fighting for better pay, better health coverage, or better roads and schools, we need representatives that will put you and your interests first, not just a few people with lots of money.
Wherever you live, I hope you’ll find your unique way to join the movements that are empowering people and communities. Figure out who your candidates are. Help them. Even if it’s one hour per week or $2 dollars a month, everything makes a difference. Thank you for time and contribution.
I believe government should work for you, not for corrupt politicians, lobbyists and Big Money. I am running for the WV House of Delegates on a platform of:
I am a hunter and gun owner.
I will defend the 2nd Amendment and the rights of responsible gun owners.
