Born and Raised In Northern Michigan
I was raised as a generational Northern Michigander, by God-fearing parents who taught me the values of faith and hard work.
My parents showed me that the American Dream can be achieved with effort and drive. Building a mechanical contracting business from the bottom up, it became one of the largest and most successful companies of its type, in our region. Working alongside them in the family business I learned the importance of having a strong work ethic, but also learned that small businesses are often harmed by an ever-growing, overreaching government that has little to no knowledge of the industries they regulate.
As an adult, I carried on my family’s tradition of giving back to the community I call home. Holding a variety of volunteer positions, including: Treasurer and President of the Chamber of Commerce; Vice-Chair of the Wexford County Republican Party; Mayor of the City of Manton; Director of the Wexford County Women on Target; and a number of other nonprofit organizations, with a strong passion for working with veterans.
Today, I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. These three titles are the ones I am most proud of, and what drove me to run for public office. Working toward curbing the tide against the state and country I love, and protecting our “Up North” way of life. Fighting to ensure that my kids – and yours – grow up enjoying the same freedoms and opportunities we were afforded.
As a State Representative, I voted for tax cuts, introduced legislation for constitutional carry, and supported lowering car insurance rates. I have consistently been ranked among the top conservatives in my caucus for the duration of my time in office. I currently chair the House Communications and Technology Committee.
