I am honored to have been elected to serve another term representing Oregon's House District 49 in the State Legislature. In the 2021 and 2022 sessions I helped pass legislation to make education more effective and inclusive, to help renters and homeowners stay in their homes, to work for racial equity, decrease tax paperwork and to move Oregon toward a sustainable future. As a member of four committees, I worked on policy to improve education, protect the environment and help Oregon businesses recover. I also secured Federal assistance for local affordable housing, workforce training and food assistance projects. I look forward to continuing this work in the future.
My background is as a teacher and Troutdale City Council member. I have taught at Cedar Ridge Middle School, Reynolds High School, Corbett High School, Gresham High School and Mount Hood Community College. I am currently substituting in East County schools.
I became a teacher because I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed and thrive. In the legislature, I will support legislation that helps working families, small businesses and our natural areas and wildlife. I see Oregon's challenges—and its brightest opportunities—through the eyes of a teacher. I am passionate about investing in our kids and protecting our future. I will work for all Oregonians to promote equity and community, and to make the system fairer and more effective.
