Thank you for visiting my legislative website. I am honored to serve my second term representing the residents of Happy Valley and East Portland.
I’m proud to serve on the Education Committee, and I will use
my experience as a classroom teacher and school board member to make decisions
that are in the best interests of Oregon’s students. I am also happy to sit on
the Higher Education, Innovation, and Workforce Development, and Energy and Environment committees.
Since being sworn in, I have found representing my district to be very
rewarding. One of my proudest accomplishments while serving in the State Capitol this year was the strengthening of CTE (Career Technical Education) and STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) programs in schools. CTE and STEM allow students to build business, technical, and science skills that lead to living wage jobs.
I was also very proud to initiate and get passed three bills to protect pollinator health. After the massive bee die-off in Wilsonville two years ago, I grew concerned about the future of our pollinators, which are needed to produce about one-third of our food. My legislation provides significant funding for Oregon State University to enlarge their successful pollinator research lab. It also helps the OSU Extension service educate farmers, gardeners and the general public about how they can help ensure pollinators will thrive.
I look forward to continuing to serve in the Oregon Legislature. To best
represent my district, I encourage you to share your views with me. You may

you may call my office at (503) 986-1448.
