I am running to represent the people of Sandy, Draper, and White City. I have watched as year after year the legislature ignores the issues that are important to our families in favor of special interests.

I am a moderate. I am not running to advance the agenda of a party or special interest group. I am not beholden to anyone other than the voters. I am running so that the people of District 32 have their voices heard in the legislature. I care about better support for public education, clean air, transparency in government, and not having our taxpayer money wasted.

I grew up in Provo. My parents both spent their careers working at BYU. I graduated from Timpview High School and then attended Stanford University where I met my husband John, who was raised in Centerville, Utah.

After Stanford I attended medical school at the University of Utah, and completed my residency in anesthesiology at Harvard University. We’ve lived in District 32 for over a decade. Our children attend local public schools.

I am a board-certified¬†anesthesiologist at Riverton Hospital and I’m currently chair of the Department of Anesthesiology. I also volunteer at our children’s schools and sports leagues and at our church.

When I read about what is going on at the Utah legislature, I don’t feel represented. ¬†The issues that matter to me and my family are regularly ignored in favor of “message” bills that waste time and money. ¬†I’m running to have the voices of regular people heard again at our legislature.
