As a fourth-generation landowner in Northeast Washington, I have deep roots in the 7th District. My husband, Marty, and I live in Republic with our three children.
I was appointed to the 7th District seat in 2017 by county commissioners from five counties. I replaced former Rep. Shelly Short, who was appointed to the state Senate.
Our district includes Ferry, Pend Oreille, and Stevens counties and parts of Okanogan and Spokane counties.
