I AM THRILLED TO HAVE BEEN ELECTED TO SERVE THE 10TH HOUSE DISTRICT IN THE KANSAS LEGISLATURE!

The district includes the southeast corner of Lawrence, as well as Baldwin City and rural southeast Douglas County.

I am a Kansas native whose fierce love for this state and its people has led me to a career in public service – in nonprofits, local government, and now elected office.

For the past seven years, I have worked as the Sustainability Director for the City of Lawrence and Douglas County, where I led our local government efforts to use less energy, support our local agricultural economy, and generate less waste. I have seen firsthand the critical and positive role that government can play in improving the quality of life of our citizens.

I care deeply about the future of our state. I want Kansas to be a great place to raise my sons, build our small business, and get outside and play in our Kansas landscapes.

I live in Lawrence with my husband Rick, stepson Miles, and sons Leo and Bowie. Rick is executive chef and co-owner of Limestone pizza in downtown Lawrence. Our family, small business, and multiple volunteer and board commitments keep us busy and connected to this great community!

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to serve the constituents of the 10th district and the people of Kansas. This coming January, I will be serving on the following committees: Federal and State Affairs, Health and Human Services, and Agriculture.

I look forward to working for you and with you in Topeka.
