Tell us a little bit about yourself (i.e. where are you from, where’d you go to school, what you do for a living, etc.)
I moved to Ohio 10 years ago from Chicago.  After graduating from law school at the University of Toledo, I started working for the City of Toledo as the Executive Assistant to Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson.  I’m currently a project manager for the City of Toledo. I grew up in Iowa and studied engineering at Iowa State University.

Why are you running for this office?
I care very deeply about my community, and I love living in Maumee.  I want to make sure that it continues to stay a great place to live, and I have a lot of fresh new ideas that can move Maumee forward.  I value efficiency, family-friendly neighborhoods, innovation, and collaboration.  

What are the most important issues on your campaign?
I want to focus on improving our city services, increasing our economic development, and investing in our parks and recreation.

Give us a fun fact about yourself.
I love yoga, running and reading.

What’s your favorite thing about Ohio?
The people.  I moved around a lot as a child and I’ve lived in quite a few states as an adult, and I’ve never felt more at home then I do in Ohio.  This 100% due to the connections and friendships I’ve made here. 

Which team is your favorite sports team? If there’s a fun reason why, tell us!
It’s a tie between the UToledo Rockets and the Iowa State Cyclones!

If you were a professional athlete what song would you choose to be your “walk out” song?
"Run the World" by Beyonce

What TV show have you binge watched entirely too fast?
Parks and Rec ( I am constantly told I’m Leslie Knope)

If you were an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?
Volleyball (I used to be an athlete)

Most importantly, how can young Dems help in your campaign?
Canvassing, phone calls, texting and DONATIONS!
