A registered nurse, former hospital financial director, construction business with husband, staffer of former Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Colo., Dem who became a Republican).
I grew up with strong democratic values from a single mother and Irish immigrant grandmother and 6 brothers and sisters. My mom worked 2-3 jobs. I know the struggles of putting a roof over your head, food on the table, caring for each other, and caring for neighbors. We lived in a low-income neighborhood and understood our neighbors plight. I was taught the JFK values of ask what I can do for my country and be accountable. I'm a RN, small business owner, and I worked for US Senator. I'm fed up with politicians who work for their interests and not work for the people. We face serious challenges. I'm running to face those challenges and work with leaders who want to move us forward.
