A typical day in my life includes…

a lot of phone calls to voters, knocking on doors around the district, packing lunches and making macaroni and cheese.

I was born…

in Kansas City, MO.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is that nowhere else can you find such amazing landscapes, sunrises and sunsets.

I’m listening to…

the people of district 6 who deserve a representative who truly listens first and will bring their stories to the floor of the House.

My family…

is probably at home having a dance party right now. My youngest has perfected his Bruno Mars routines. 24 Karat plays nonstop in our house thanks to Alexa.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my kids. I’m so busy with the campaign right now that relaxed family dinners are a thing of the past. So dinner with all my boys, though I’d prefer not to clean up the mess afterward.

One thing I cannot live without…

is green ice tea.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a tv news anchor, and so as a journalism student when Peter Jennings responded to my email, I felt like evening news here I come! Life, as it always does, had other plans for me.

I’m inspired by…

all genres of music. It is probably why I ended up marrying a musician. I can’t play a note or carry a tune to save my life.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad. He was the one who taught me to lead by listening.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

no child should go hungry or live in fear.

The perfect day would be…

hanging out with family, trying a new restaurant and being outdoors.

My first job was…

as a hostess for a local Thai restaurant. It isn’t around anymore, but they used to have two Valley locations – Pink Pepper.

My favorite escape…

is blasting music in my car while driving. It clears my head and it is when I come up with new ideas.

My life…

is an ongoing story.

I’m currently working on…

restoring the checks and balances in our government.

Always…

eat your vegetables.

Never…

give up.

Favorite Quote…

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Gandhi.

Biggest Dream…

is that everyone has the opportunity to strive toward their biggest dream.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

the Oxford comma.
