Since first elected to City Council in 2017 I have jumped in with both feet, learning as much as possible in every area. I attend as many meetings as possible making sure Uintah is represented by an elected official in our community and has a voice at the table. Developing relationships with neighboring community, county and state leaders that help our city.

In the last four years, I have not shied away from tackling tough decisions and large projects. I have studied and learned the challenges our infrastructure is facing. Collaborating closely with engineers, public works, and the state to find crucial projects and taking real steps to solve and complete these projects. My goal is to make sure we have sufficient storage for our needs, make sure our system stays in compliance, and continues to deliver clean and safe drinking water to each one of our homes.

Simply put, I love Uintah and want to contribute.

About Me:

I was born and raised in the town of Fairview, Utah and have deeply ingrained small-town values. I graduated from North Sanpete High School and Utah State University receiving bachelor’s degrees in Political Science and Sociology.

After college, I met my husband Matt and settled into the amazing city of Uintah, which he has called home for most of his life. Matt and I are the parents to two children. We are glad to be able to raise them in a strong community with the same small-town values I enjoyed as a child. We love living in Utah and regularly enjoy being in the outdoors.

I worked for the Division of Child and Family Services as a social worker where I gained valuable insight into available community resources and the struggles families deal with. As a strong advocate for mental health awareness, community values, and access to resources, I hope to benefit the city of Uintah. 

I’m honored to have this opportunity to work for you and help your voices be heard.
