I spent 20 years working in the financial industry. Starting at an entry-level position and working my way up to Assistant Vice President. Which I found very useful when engaged in the Missoula City Budget process while on council.

​ I've spent the last 20 years as the Executive Director of two non-profits in the transportation industry. These positions have required me to work with local, state and federal governmental agencies and officials which has benefited our seniors and veterans. This work has help start several tribal and public transit programs resulting in the creation of many jobs in Montana. Working with the National Academies of Science on research panels has been most rewarding as they have created additional transportation options for our veterans, allowing military certifications to immediately transfer to the public sector and an economic development plan for the Blackfeet Tribe.

​ My husband, Steve, and I have been blessed with two very extraordinary children, owning a small business and having extended family and friends in almost every community in Montana. I feel very fortunate that my father moved us to Montana in 1970 - it truly is the Last Best Place.

I've been extremely honored to be endorsed by- Brad Tschida, Jesse Ramos (former City Councilman), Jim Helgeson, Mark Ward, Larry Anderson, Linda and Marsha Frey, Jane Van Fossen, Clancy Kenck, Quentin Rhoades, Rick and Sally Evans, Patrick Sanders, and George Bingham, Adam Hertz (former City Council and HD96).

I'm also humbled to be endorsed by the following organizations- Montanans for Limited Government, Americans for Prosperity, Montana Shooting Sports Association, and the NRA with an "AQ" rating for the 2022 Montana General Election- this rating reflects my strong support for the Second Amendment.
