When I was 18, I made two very important decisions: I began a career in Healthcare and I registered to vote as a Republican. Those two decisions, along with my Christian faith, have charted the course of my life.
As a Cardiovascular Technologist I've worked in a variety of healthcare settings for my whole life. How is that relevant to Politics you may ask? Healthcare is all about Triage. Ask the important questions, then LISTEN. Work together with a team of your peers, determine a diagnosis and make a Plan of Care. This lends itself well to being a Public Servant. Reach out to constituents, listen to their issues, collaborate with your team, and create legislation that remedies the issue.
My political life started young, working on local, state, and national campaigns about 30 years ago, across 3 states. I moved to Hightstown, NJ in 2006 with my husband Bob, a small business owner. I've been a Committeewoman here for 15 years, a Club President, a longtime Municipal Chair, and a Councilwoman.
My volunteer life here has included 15 years on the Board of Health and the Mercer County Medical Reserve Corps where I've responded to floods, fires, hurricanes, and worked at dozens of testing sites and vaccination clinics throughout the pandemic. I've also served as an EMT on the local First Aid Squad, done animal welfare, wildlife rehab, outreach to troubled teens, and adult victims of sexual abuse. I am a Stephen Minister at Princeton Alliance Church, and a lifelong Pro-Life activist.
