PUBLIC EDUCATION: As a mom and foster parent with children in the public schools, I am committed to ensuring children of all backgrounds have access to an excellent education in a safe setting and teachers have the resources they need.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: As a meteorologist, I’ve studied and educated on climate change, which impacts almost everything around us, including our agriculture. I will also fight to keep our air and water clean for future generations.

WORKING FAMILIES: Minnesota has record low unemployment, but many families still struggle due to low wages, healthcare costs, etc. I am labor and union endorsed because I will work for fair wages, affordable healthcare coverage, and programs such as paid family/medical leave.
I have been an election judge since 2018. Minnesota has wonderfully secure elections that also make voting accessible with programs like absentee voting, extended early voting (a form of absentee voting), and same-day registration. Because of this, MN consistently has one of the highest voter turn-outs, which is something to be proud of. The one change I support is when someone gets a new driver's license, make voter registration automatic with an opt-out option if they do not want to register.
Considerations of racial and ethnic disparity are woven into almost every issue we consider. For example, climate change impacts are even more likely to effect poor and minority communities. The need to preserve reproductive freedom for all is especially critical when we consider unequal access to healthcare means BIPOC women are far more likely to die during pregnancy. Among other policies, I would also like to expand buyer assistance programs to allow more families to afford their own homes.
As stated in my priorities, I believe we need to support working families, because our economy in MN should work for everyone, not just some. Policies to help achieve this goal include: Ensuring everyone makes a living wage, supporting families with more affordable childcare options and paid family and medical leave, expanded job training opportunities, and continued investment in small businesses, with plans to ensure more women and people of color have opportunities for ownership.
I’m a third generation military member who understands guns well and respects the rights of law-abiding citizens to own guns. However, any conversation about crime prevention must include gun access, and as a mother, school shootings break my heart. At a minimum, we need universal background checks to close loopholes on people who should not own guns being able to purchase them, and red flag laws, which would keep those who are a danger to themselves or others from having access to firearms.
