What makes you the most qualified candidate for this position?
First, you can’t serve the people you hope to represent if you don’t win your election. I’ve won four out of the five campaigns I’ve been in – including knocking off a three-term incumbent in 2020. I’m battle-tested with a proven and successful campaign track record while neither or my opponents has yet to win a race. This is critical in deciding which candidate will have the best chance to unseat the district’s incumbent Democrat in November.
Secondly, it’s not enough for candidates to simply tell people what they want to hear on the campaign trail. Sadly, voters have been let down, time and time again, by candidates who talked-the-talk while trying to get elected, only to vote the exact opposite way once in office.
Again, I’m battle-tested and proud that I voted – despite intense pressure and opposition from the Democrats, the media, lobbyists and even some of my fellow Republicans – exactly as I said I would when asking voters for their trust to represent them in Carson City.
In fact, in the 2021 session of the Nevada Legislature, I earned the #1 conservative rating from the Nevada Policy Research Institute with a 99.22% score.
Lastly, I’m a mom – so I know and fully understand the challenges, fears and hopes parents face in raising and educating their children. I’m also a businesswoman – so I know and fully understand the challenges entrepreneurs face in dealing with anti-business government red tape, regulations and taxes.

Briefly describe the core duties of the position you are running for.
It's the job of a U.S. Representative to represent the citizens of their district, state, and the country (in that order) as it applies to writing/repealing law, budgeting, and holding the Executive and Judicial Branches of the federal government accountable to the Constitution.
A brief statement about your platform:
I am a Constitutional and Fiscally Conservative Republican running in Nevada's 4th Congressional District to represent the citizens of this great district, state, and country. My top three platform items are: 1.
Illegal Immigration, 2. Excessive Federal Spending and Debt, and 3. Federal Government Overreach and Growth. In short, our country is being invaded and our elected officials are continuously failing to address the safety and security of our nation while furthering policy that encourages further invasion. It's simply criminal! If the invasion doesn't destroy us, the spending of your tax dollars at an unprecedented rate and accruing unfathomable levels of debt will. It is time to bring common sense back to our federal government and protect our communities and our national solvency. In addition, the continued growth of federal agencies and the pitting of the federal government against the people needs to be reined in and ultimately eliminated. The government is for, of, and by the People and this message needs to be taken to Washington D.C. by someone unafraid to speak truth to power.
What makes you the most qualified candidate for this position
I am a 20-year Air Force veteran. My first 10 years of service were as a Law Enforcement K-9 handler/trainer. The second 10 years were spent as a commissioned officer, leading people and organizations. I deployed to the Middle East 4 times, spent time in Iraq and earned a Bronze Star for service in Afghanistan. When I retired from the military, I worked two years for corporate America and was a business leader/consultant for 31 storefronts in Alaska. In 2015 I opened my first Insurance agency in Las Vegas. Over the first four years, I grew that business to three agencies and more than 400% in size. I have a BS in Criminal Justice, MS in Administration (Law), and a Graduate Certificate in Organizational finance. I’m a graduate of Air Force Squadron Officer School (Distinguished) and Air Force Command and Staff College. I’m a better candidate than my opponents because none of the candidates in this race, including the incumbent, can say any of what I just listed. I have foreign experience, federal law and process improvement experience, I have business experience, I’ve signed the front and back of paychecks, and I have school age children that drive me to fight for this country. Ultimately, my experience is broader, my education is greater and my service in high stress/risk environments and success in those environments is proven and unmatched.
