Committee Assignments


In my years in the legislature, I'VE BEEN YOUR VOICE OF BALANCE AND REASON as I've worked to represent you on Capitol Hill. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and have spent the past 25 years living in Murray, Utah, where I have had the honor of serving the citizens of House District 35 as your Representative. ​ ​I hold a BA degree Human Resource Management from Westminster College and have over 25 years experience working in the field of human resource management. I was honored to receive the Distinguished Alumni Award from Westminster College. ​ Through the years, I have fought for legislation supporting our schools and our students. I've supported legislation which ensured teachers are paid additional professional development hours. ​ I've worked to give municipalities the power to clean up "meth homes" in their neighborhoods and have backed legislation that made childcare accessible for all Utahns. I've advocated for full-day kindergarten and worked to eliminate sales tax on food. I've pushed for resources to keep the Great Salt Lake healthy and thriving. I voted no on the ban on participation of transgender students in school athletics. I voted against the 2023 redistricting maps and voted for Free Fare February which gave UTA riders a month to ride UTA for free. ​Currently, I serve on the following committees in the House- Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee, House Ethics, House Judiciary and Administrative Rules. ​As your Representative, it has been my pleasure to serve you. I would be honored to continue that service. I represent YOU. So, if there's an issue that's important to you, then it's important to me. I'm always open to your ideas. Call or email me - I'd appreciate hearing from you. ​
