Candidate Biography

My family has called Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District home for 5 generations. My grandfather was a machinist in Fond du Lac, and I come from a long-line of dairy farmers. I spent some quality time as a teenager running grain sweeps and working in scale houses. These experiences helped build my work ethic.

My father was a 100% service-connected disabled Navy veteran, and my parents met and fell in love while learning to adapt to disabilities. When I was 15, my parents were both hospitalized, and I was transitioned into the Fond du Lac County foster care system. I know how our foster care system works from the inside.

I graduated from St. Mary Springs High School at 17 and worked 3rd shift at a manufacturing plant in Rosendale, WI. Working in a factory gave me the inspiration to attend a University of Wisconsin Oshkosh preview day, and I decided to pursue a college degree. I was fortunate to have received GI Bill benefits from my parents along with PELL grant assistance and federal work study benefits. I know just how important community support matters in our society. I believe that we need community advocates and representatives to lead us to a strong, healthy, safe and sustainable future. My goal is to make sure that the 6th Congressional district of Wisconsin is thriving for my family and yours for generations to come. We are so fortunate to live in a place where family values, loyalty and justice still matter. Where people tell the truth and look out for each other. This is a place where, when you see someone stranded by the side of the road, you stop and help. Join me and bringing our community back together. Let’s unite and overcome the challenges we face together.
