Allow Me to Introduce Myself
I was born and raised right here in Somers, alongside my four siblings. With my parents both being educators, Kenosha was the perfect place for our family to grow and prosper.
After graduating High School, I attended Marquette University. After graduation, I was proud to serve my home community as a legislative aide to my predecessor, then-Rep. Peter Barca, for five years, where I prioritized constituent services and ensuring access to the resources that help our community.
After attending the University of Wisconsin Law School, I became a Special Prosecutor in the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office and then an Assistant District Attorney for Milwaukee County where I was able to gain first hand experience in our justice system and public safety. I was honored to serve as the President of the Kenosha Public Library Foundation Board and was proud to serve locally on the board of the National Alliance for Mental Illness – Kenosha.
After first being elected to represent the 64th Assembly District in 2019, I have focused on creating a path to economic stability for the working families and small businesses that drive our economy. To help achieve this, I was able to reach across the aisle this past session to pass key provisions of my Main Street Recovery package, which provided necessary relief to small business and working families. In addition, I continued to work to advance Buy American legislation to invest in American companies and American workers.
Ensuring that working people in our community can raise their families in safe and healthy neighborhoods has also been a priority of mine. That is why this past session I worked with Attorney General Josh Kaul to introduce the Safer Wisconsin Plan, which is a $115 million bill package aimed at giving law enforcement and communities the resources they need to combat violence and crime in our community.
Having lived here my whole life, it has been a privilege to watch our community continue to grow and prosper and I am committed to continuing this growth and ensuring the greater Kenosha and Racine area remains Wisconsin’s top region.
