My husband Jacob and I are privileged to be raising our family in Waconia. We are the proud parents of a rambunctious two-year-old boy Adam, and twin babies Charles and James.
Prior to becoming the youngest woman ever elected to the Minnesota State Senate, I served on my local city council in Chanhassen and worked for Minnesota’s largest industry of health innovation and care. I am an active mental health advocate, and mentor young women through the Miss America Organization.
Nine months pregnant with my first baby, I was called to run for the Senate, determined to secure a brighter future for my son and the next generation of Minnesotans.
In my first term, I fulfilled my campaign promises by successfully passing legislation to support growing families in Minnesota, fighting for law enforcement and safer communities, and achieving historic funding for Highway 212.
It has been an honor to serve my constituents in the Minnesota State Senate, advocating for our community, and seeing positive changes go into effect in our beautiful state. I am proud of the successes I have had in the legislature, but I know there is much more to do.
In 2021, I successfully passed historic funding for Highway 212, one of the most dangerous stretches of highway in the state. I have supported recovery for Mainstreet businesses to thrive, keeping Minnesota innovation here in Minnesota. I spearheaded accommodations for pregnant and postpartum women in the workplace, as well as passing legislation to help Minnesota’s most vulnerable mothers. In my second year, I fought for law and order, permanent tax relief, and better educational outcomes for our children. I am committed to making Minnesota an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. And I am just getting started.
In my second term, I will continue to fight for my constituents and their rights to safe streets, quality education, and thriving business opportunities. I will do this by continuing to support the brave men and women who make up our law enforcement, encouraging excellence in literacy and mathematics while empowering parents, and working hard to help families afford everyday life and small businesses afford to continue to exist in the face of record inflation.
I am seeking not only your support this November, but your input as well. I look forward to speaking with you on the campaign trail, listening to your ideas, and telling you more about my vision for Minnesota.
