Who I Am

I'm a long-time local horse farmer and businesswoman. I'm not a millionaire - not even close! My family and I are like many of our neighbors: working harder than ever to make a good life for ourselves and our loved ones.

All around me I see folks like us "making do" while our Senator ignores our concerns. There's something wrong here, and I'm ready to get busy fixing it!

Why I'm Running

I'm running because I want to make a difference. Because Illinois can - and should - do better for all of us. I will work for:

  • Equitable funding for public education.
  • High-quality, affordable health care for all.
  • A living wage and protections for worker rights.

Illinois is my priority and my focus and nothing can drag me away from my commitment to Illinois excellence!
