Why I’m Running

As a nurse, I have worked in communities across Oregon, including House District 37, caring for people when they are at their most vulnerable: those facing a life-changing illness or trying to live out their senior years with dignity. In my first term as a state representative, I fought for solutions to some of our state’s most persistent challenges.

In my first term, we secured paid family leave for many Oregonians and record investments in public education; we increased healthcare access, and passed life saving, common sense gun control.

I’m running again because I know there’s still work we need to do in Salem. I still see families lining up at food banks, choosing between healthcare and dinner. I believe we can and should do more for those families. As we start to fight our way back from the healthcare and economic crisis of Covid-19, I believe it is critical to have nurses and advocates like me in Salem, fighting for working people and small businesses.

Our community deserves a representative they can count on. I will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that all Oregonians have every opportunity for success. I will continue to act with expertise, compassion, and unstoppable determination. I will continue to fight to pass legislation that increases access to affordable healthcare, invests in our public education system, and protects our environment.

Nurses are in our community clinics, at the bedside in our hospitals, and we belong in our State Capitol. If you are ready to fight with me, I ask you to join my campaign by volunteering and donating today.
