Being born in Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 lakes, I was able to grow up exploring lakes, rivers and streams and unique communities where we lived. I learned community involvement was vital to safe neighborhoods, thriving communities and a fantastic quality of life.
My husband Robert and I have been married for 30 years and our daughter Rachel is now a college student. Our family has been dedicated volunteers in our community though our church, Benton County 4H, the Philomath Lions, Philomath Fire District, Philomath Library and Philomath Community Services.
My husband, Robert and I have been business owners for more than 20 years of our marriage, working side-by-side in agriculture, nursery retail and landscape contracting, transportation and contracting.
In 2018, I accepted the volunteer Program Manager position for the Philomath Community Gleaners serving many of our most fragile neighbors through securing food for their families.
In 2020, I decided to run for Philomath City Council. In serving this way, I have had countless phone calls and conversations and continue to be inspired by the community that we have. I have sought to build relationships in our region and state that benefit Philomath. I believe that these resources and experiences will only assist in my service to our city.
