Biography

I was born and raised in the Flint and Tri County area by generations of hard working GM workers . I'm a wife of twenty-six years and a mother to four great Gen Z kids that all struggle to see many future career opportunities here in Michigan , unlike their grand parents and great grand parents had . I graduated from high school in 1989 during a Republican recession , went to trade school and have been a licensed cosmetologist since 1991 . I worked that trade on and off until 2014 when I became a certified special Ed . Parapro and now work at Oaktree Elementary school in Goodrich Michigan where I have lived most of my adult life .Jobs in Michigan can be reformed by opening our opportunities by decriminalizing marijuanna and brining biodegradables and clean energy technologies to our state ! The revenue will help put people to work with a living wage . Union workers need answers and solutions to the real threats of loss in reguards to their hard earned pensions ! I intend to fight for them and Agriculture Business men and women who are following the rules and are still losing business with all Trump's New Trade war with numberous countries they had valuable agreements with threatening their livelyhood ! We must Vote out the Republican's this fall to stop this Madness !
When elected I plan to work closely with State lawmakers to past Medicare for all and decimate the prescription drug prices and medical costs . We will reinstate EPA regulations and protect the Great Lakes , including implementingreal solutions for the line 5 ticking time bomb!
I will fight for our Public Schools to fully fund education and protect our kids and teachers by supporting common sense gun reform laws and get weapons of war off the streets .
We must repeal the Trump Tax Scam and replace it with real middle class tax cuts ! We Need to Protect Equality for All especially Womens Rights ,the LGBTQ community, and help pass laws to make Cops Walk a" True Blue line " because Black Lives Matter and officiers need to be held to account for abuse of power ! I support an Urgent and CLEAN DACA bill ! DACA kids are true Americans , and have proven their worth and more - the waiting needs to end now ! I believe the current administration is dangerous to every American especially women , children , people of color , the Disabled , the Elderly , the LGBTQ community , foreign Refugee's begging for asylum at our boarders and even our U.S. Military ! ... and if they are Not stopped soon OUR children will spend their lives trying to clean up this mess ! This is why I am running for state senate district #31 , and I'm asking for your vote ! , and I'm asking that you encourage everyone you know to vote Democrat Blue this AUGUST 7th Primary Election 2018 , We have so much to do and protect now , and our lives depend on it !
