I have lived in the 38th district since 1990 with my husband, a retired IBEW member, and my two children who are all grown up and making their mama proud. My husband and I operate a commercial horse farm with success at state and national levels. I actively support local businesses and my community. I've worked with a variety of area organizations including 4H, FFA, the Democratic party, and Ottawa and Grundy Indivisible groups. My family and I are active members of the Christ Episcopal Church of Ottawa.
With hard work and a lot of perseverance my husband and I have navigated some bumpy roads and managed to carve out a life for ourselves here in LaSalle County. But it's never been easy, and my decision to enter this campaign was a game-changer for my whole family.
The tractor you see here is the 1944 Ford 8N Tractor my husband was going to restore for tractor shows. We sold it to finance the start of my campaign.
Recently we picked up a stack of yard signs for my campaign. It would be a real honor to park one of them in your front yard!
