I am a lifelong resident of north Clark County. I graduated from Battle Ground High School and shortly after graduating, joined the United States Army. I served for 12 years as a combat medic and participated in 2 tours in Iraq with the 40th Engineer Battalion, 1st Armored Division, 2nd Brigade Combat Team. I worked in health care for an additional 9 years in various roles and decided last year to go back to school full-time. I currently attend Washington State University-Vancouver as a Junior studying Management Information Systems.
I am a single mother of a 10-year old son who attends Cedar Tree Classical Christian School in Ridgefield, Washington. I attend Church on the Rock in Battle Ground, where I volunteer monthly. I am deeply committed to maintaining the lifestyle long-time residents of Battle Ground are accustomed to and hope to grow our area cautiously and with a fiscally responsible approach. I am a strong supporter of the Constitution of the United States of America and believe in the American dream.
Politics is a new arena for me, but I feel that a fresh perspective is just what this city needs. I am not one to shy away from a challenge. Status quo leadership and liberal values in this city is transforming Battle Ground into a mini-Seattle. I echo the many residents’ sentiments that I have spoken with in saying enough is enough. It is time to reverse course and get back to what it means to live in a small town.
