I am a local girl who graduated from Mountain Home and attended Boise State University and received my bachelor degree while being a volunteer EMT. Some would say I am an old soul. I enjoy canning, baking, spending time with family, outdoor activities, long country drives, big game hunting, fishing and taking scenery pictures. I have been married for 17 years to a homegrown local rancher/construction heavy equipment owner operator. We currently have 16 head of Black Angus cattle with 2 more on the way. We own a small excavation company. Family is the most important aspect of our lives. We both have very strong community ties. We both have been the President (Exalted Ruler) of Mountain Home Elks Lodge #2276. I have chaired several committees and activities pertaining to numerous programs at the local level and state level. I am a Certified Red Cross Shelter Manager. In the past I have assisted with Relay for Life, Senior Celebration and been a BLM/Forest Service support team member for townhall meetings in the local community; and FEMA relief efforts in Florida. I have also coached soccer for our local parks & recreation department for 14 years twice a season over the last 18 years.
