I was born and raised in Maryland, met my husband of 22 years at college in Wisconsin. We moved to Kansas after getting married, where I proceeded to get my Masters of Science in Environmental Science from Friends University in Wichita. I began working at a local pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, where I spent 15 of my 22 years in leadership. In the past 2-3 years, I’ve become more involved in my community’s BOE and local Republican Party. I’ve enjoyed learning more about politics and the need to be involved in community decisions. I’m excited to be part of the Eisenhower Series and expand my knowledge.
