As a life-long resident of our state, I am proud of my experiences in rural, urban, and small-town Nebraskan communities. I attended a one-room school in rural Lancaster County before my family moved to Lincoln. I've also lived across the state in McCook and Alliance, and I currently reside in Lincoln with my husband John. Together, we have four grown sons and seven grandchildren, with whom we spend most weekends and summer vacations enjoying the natural beauty and rich history of Nebraska.
I have built a career of caring for Nebraskans, first as a healthcare worker and later examining systemic and structural barriers impacting the lives of our Nebraska neighbors. I've also been able to volunteer on the Lincoln Public Schools Strategic Planning Committee, the LPS High School Task Force, and YWCA of Lincoln Board. In all of these experiences, I’ve put people first by creating welcoming and inclusive communities where everyone feels like they belong and have created opportunities by breaking down barriers for people.
I am running for the Public Service Commission because we need someone who will put the interests of Nebraskans first. As a Commissioner, I will be an effective champion of environmental issues, push to expand high-speed internet to all Nebraskans, and reform regulations to be more consumer friendly while promoting economic growth for working families.
I'm hard at work so our Public Service Commission can secure opportunity for all Nebraskan communities. I hope you can help by contributing your time, talent, or monetary support today!
See you on the campaign trail!
