Why I'm Running

I am running for State Representative in PA HD-166, because as a mom, community leader, and non-profit Executive Director, I have honed the skills necessary to negotiate and work in partnership with those of opposing viewpoints and get things done. While representing the community of the 166th, I will serve in Harrisburg as a new voice with fresh energy and a focus on equity and justice.
