About Me

I am a progressive Democrat who was raised in LD 15 and who has dedicated my career to fighting public corruption, advocating for education, and defending reproductive justice in Arizona. Will you help me flip our district blue?

The next election is critical: you will be hearing about Arizona's underfunded education system, our financially inaccessible health care, and our perpetually troubled foster care program. These are issues that I care about and will fight hard to fix. But make no mistake about it: these are symptoms of a bigger problem.

We will never have the education and health care our citizens deserve until we address the conflicts of interest, dark money, and corruption at the capitol.

If elected, I would introduce legislation that requires our elected officials and agency heads to disclose and divest from financial conflicts. I will reimagine honest services laws and eliminate the revolving door of politicians-turned-lobbyists that is eroding our democracy. Together we can restore honest government that works for the people.

I've built a career fighting against corruption and for education.

Now, I'm running for office because our kids deserve better.

End Public Corruption

Arizona is ranked #1 in Public Corruption. We need to strengthen ethics laws and preserve the referendum process if we want an accountable government.

His Christmas card is sitting on my countertop, stamped and ready to be sent. Dr. Wettaw was the reason I went to NAU (long story), and I am forever in his debt.

Dr. Wettaw; you put so much good into the world. https://t.co/LfZGEWA9Pz

Today the Lumberjack community mourns the loss of a university icon, John Wettaw. John dedicated his life to the sciences long before #STEM was a regularly used term. He made an impact in his field and in the classroom, and he changed the lives of students who crossed his path. https://t.co/Mwa1wJzurU

To all those who so gladly joined the fight:

When our children tell our story... they’ll tell the story of tonight.

To all of you who hope, believe, knock, dial, or canvass:

Thank you.

Access to healthcare, fully-funded education, and real public corruption reforms are on your ballot #LD15.

I spent part of my career putting politicians in jail—I’m ask your help to get me to the Arizona House of Representatives.
