I am a lifelong Democrat vying for the PA House seat currently held by Republican Tom Mehaffie. The 106th district serves Derry Township, Hummelstown, Lower Swatara, Royalton, Conewago Township, and parts of Swatara Township.
I am a graduate of Middletown Area High School and Penn State, University Park, and have been volunteering in the community for almost two decades. I am Chairwoman of the Gov. Pinchot Group of the Sierra Club. I am also a trained member of the Dauphin County Animal Response Team, having assisted with the sheltering of local pets affected by the 2011 flooding and dogs rescued from puppy mills.
I serve as a legal observer and coordinator with the National Lawyers Guild of Central PA and have been a poll watcher in every presidential election since 2004. I proudly marched in the worldwide Women’s March and the People’s Climate March in Washington D.C.
As a friend and ally to people of all colors, ages, gender identities and religions, I vow to fight discrimination in any form and I vow to protect our environment for future generations. My purpose for running is to amplify the voices of the people.
